Soon it will be party season, whether it’s a summer BBQ, chilling with friends, or celebrating the upcoming Platinum Jubilee. With that in mind, here are some Summer/Jubilee baking ideas! Cakes, and sweet treats perfect for any summer celebrating!
What follows are just some basic ideas, so by all means if you have a great recipe, let me know!
Summer Bakes/Jubilee Baking Ideas
To me, summer is BBQ season, and I love to bring along treats. Mostly because I quite enjoy baking, and usually use it as an excuse to make a batch of something!
I’m a big fan of cupcakes, and have shared my recipes here on the blog more than once, check out this post for a favourite!
I was definitely going for a strawberries and cream thing here. These are actually just basic vanilla cupcakes topped with fresh strawberries, but they definitely look the part!
You could even add some flavouring or strawberry pieces to the cake batter, for even more!
Classic Victoria Sponge Cake
Super easy to bake, and always a joy! Victoria sponge is a brilliant beginner cake if you’re not a confident baker!
Of course though the token filling is strawberry or raspberry jam and cream, you could mix it up with different flavours, and use buttercream for something a little longer lasting!
Jubilee Baking – Red White and Blue Cupcakes
If you want something a little more dramatic when it comes to Jubilee baking ideas, why not play around with frosting!
I made these for the Jubilee back in 2012! Use gel colour for deeper colours in your buttercream.
You could even swirl your colours together, like I did with these cakes!
It looks way more complicated than putting your colours carefully separate in the piping bag and going for it!
Classic or Mini Scones
Scones are actually super easy to make, and are of course a typically British treat! Perfect with jam and clotted cream… And remember here in Cornwall #JamFirst.
