BOOM! Strawberry Lemon cake just in time for summer. Its sweet, zesty, and  oh so refreshing. We’ve got a Lemon cake filled with fresh lemon curd and the most delicious strawberry buttercream.

For the final installment of our No-Bake June, I though we’d step it up a notch and get a little fancy here. Behold… Tiramisu! This classic Italian dessert consists of layers of sponge cake soaked in coffee and brandy or liqueur with powdered chocolate and mascarpone cheese.

It add a smooth creamy texture to the dessert. Tiramisu is basically dessert lasagna.

When I was a girl scout (shout out to Troop #598. How have I still remembered that?!?) I looked forward to our camping trips. Not only to stay up all night giggling with my gals but mostly for the endless supply of S’mores! See, I was the girl scout who torched her marshmallow until it was totally burnt, then I would smash it between two graham crackers and two Hershey’s chocolate squares. Mmmm good. Thinking back on my those days inspired me to share yet another #DadProof, no bake recipe. Behold my Nutella Cheesecake S’mores Bites. Keeping with our ‘No Bake June’, I’m sure Dad will have no problem whipping up these beauties.
