It’s important to remember that any time of year is a good time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. However, June is Pride month, and when summer comes around we get to see so many of you creating amazing celebratory cakes! So, we wanted to share with you a few of our favourites, from the #CakeDecFamous gang. Here are 7 Pride Month baking ideas that are sure to get you feeling creative…

These beautifully bold cupcakes by our friend @yoras.cakes make such a statement! In a rainbow colour palette, these buttercream topped treats are finished off with a bright chocolate heart. Create your very own using the geo heart mould from Choctastique!
Love is Love
A topper or charm is a super quick and easy way to finish off any cake. And this simple white acrylic “Love is Love” cake charm is the perfect addition to this gorgeous rainbow heart!
The amazing Sarah from @bake.works created this beauty. To get that perfect heart shape, use a heart shaped baking tin to bake, and a pair of heart ganache plates to cover! Sarah then piped rainbow buttercream around the top and added a dash of colourful sprinkles to complete the design.
Just Roll with it…
A strong contender for the most eye catching Pride baking idea ever, don’t you think?! This bold rainbow swiss roll is by the fantastic @seeyenbakes and we are in love!
Amanda used six gorgeous shades from Fractal Colors to create the rainbow cake batter, and the end result is a dream! Topped off with beautifully piped buttercream and chocolate letters spelling Pride, it really is a showstopper.
Bring a bit of retro fun to your pride party! This frilly style by @lucyyoungcakes makes for the perfect centre piece!
Using different shaped piping tips and coloured frosting to create the detail, Lucy used Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Royal and Violet from Colour Mill for the perfect rainbow palette. Beautifully finished off with bold sprinkles and cute cherries, the only question is – could you be the one to cut it?!
Beauuutiful Bundt Cake
The prettiest bundt cake we ever did see! Our friend Jess at @4cake_sake created this Pride themed masterpiece, with such a fun rainbow reveal.
Topped with colourful icing and pretty pastel sprinkles (where more is more), every slice of this cake is sure to put a smile on your guests’ faces – it’s just so cute!
Looking for Pride Month baking ideas for when you have some extra time on your hands? Why not create double the cakey joy and make a matching cake and cupcakes?!
Here, @thecakerubiks worked her magic and created this beautiful love heart cake and a box of six matching cupcakes. Perfect for your pride party table, as a gift for friends or neighbours, or for taking to a Pride march!
We can’t take our eyes off this gorgeous Pride Lambeth cake – another beauty by Judit (@yoras.cakes)! The intense piping, in stunning shades from Fractal Colors is beautiful. And teamed with a pretty pink cake board? Perfection!
Like a few of these creations, Judit added the perfect finishing touches to this cake using the #spreadlove sprinkles blend from Happy Sprinkles. This mix was specially created in support of organisations within the LGBTQ+ community, with 10% of the profits going to LGBTQ+ charities. You can find out more about this here on the Happy Sprinkles instagram.
Feeling creative? We thought so! Go forth and create your boldest, brightest bakes – and don’t keep them to yourselves! As always, share them with us by tagging us at @the_cake_decorating_co and using the hashtag #cakedecfamous.
