Rock Candy Cake

This cake is as beautiful as it is fun. And the great thing about it is, that if you’re on a budget you could purchase a simple cake with white icing and decorate it yourself. Match your shower or party colors and you are good to go!

Pavlova Cake

Ok this is definitely more work than the rock candy cake above…but look at it. It’s worth it! This is a fresh fruit pavlova cake, known for its meringue crust and soft inside. The crust can even be made 2 to 3 days ahead. Ready to give this a go? Find tips and the recipe at What’s For Lunch Honey?
