Three warm weather party cakes

These cakes are some of my favorites for baking in summertime. And there are so many more…think Tres Leches, icebox cakes, ice cream cakes, etc…

1. Almond Pound Cake – You really doctor up a butter recipe golden cake mix in this recipe, adding six eggs, flour, butter, and almond and vanilla extracts. Bake the day ahead and keep at room temperature then serve with sliced fresh peaches. The Cake Mix Doctor Returns

2. Orange Marmalade Cake – Fresh orange juice and zest are in the cake, orange marmalade is spread between the layers, and a whipped cream frosting is slathered over the top and sides of the cake. Served chilled, right from the fridge, this is cool comfort in the heat. What Can I Bring?

3. Tiramisu Cake – Called a dinner party cake in my newest book, this chocolate layer confection with coffee in the cake and frosting is filled with a mix of mascarpone cheese, marsala, and a little sugar. Garnish as you would tiramisu, with a dusting of cocoa or cinnamon. The Cake Mix Doctor Returns.
