If you want to stick with the retro theme, go for a 7-Up cake. This is a delightfully simple cake to make. It doesn't require a laundry list of ingredients, nor does it require you to have master baking skills. This is a great cake for any time of the year, but is especially great as part of a summer picnic or barbecue.

Have you ever tried making your own crumb cake? Crumb cake can be a light dessert, but it also works great as a sweet treat for breakfast. We recommend a banana oatmeal crumb cake. It's a great use of those bananas you won't be eating in time, especially if you're sick of plain old banana bread.
