Fresh cherries star in this delightful 'made from scratch' tube cake that's guaranteed to be a summer hit and become a family favorite.

Buttercream Frosting

Rating: 4.5 stars 210
This is a buttercream frosting I normally put on birthday cakes. It's like the frosting that bakeries put on cakes, extra rich and creamy from the egg yolk, but I much prefer to make my own since I know what I am putting into it, and as always, homemade is best. Makes 2 1/2 cups or enough frosting to cover tops and sides of two 8- or 9-inch layers.

Ice Cream Cones

Rating: 5 stars 9
Making your own ice cream cones makes sense, especially if you make your own ice cream and have extra egg whites. You will need a silicone mat to bake these on.

Fill these cute meringue cookies with buttercream for a delightful treat!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Chef John's Red Velvet Cupcakes

Rating: 4.5 stars 75
Who doesn't love a nice red velvet cake in cupcake form? They're moist, not too sweet, and they've got a gorgeous color. Serve these spread with cream cheese frosting.

Chef John's Apple Fritters

Rating: 4.5 stars 200
I didn't think I liked apple fritters, but turns out I just don't like chunks of almost raw apple, surrounded by a doughnut. Maybe I've just been going to the wrong shops, but I've never enjoyed the texture, and always wanted to try them with cooked apples.

Rating: 4.5 stars 410
This is a good wholesome cake, especially nice for the fall.

Strawberry Angel Food Dessert
