This Rhubarb Topsy Turvy Cake is fun, tangy and delicious with ice cream.
These truffles are really simple to make - you donít even have to use the oven. Which is perfect to get the kids involved in the kitchen.
These Buttermilk Peanut Pancakes are delicious and super easy to make.
These Granola Bars are easy to make at home and perfect for breakfast on the go or for popping into school lunch boxes. Gill wrapped hers up and had them as a pocket snack on one of her family walks this week; They even took along a spare one for Teddy their dogÖI think the photo says it all!
This good looking colourful tart is quick to make and an indulgent treat. However as you sink your teeth into the fresh blueberries you can be rest assured of the health benefits of these little powerhouses from boosting brain health to getting your daily dosage of Vitamin C.
Gill recently did a photoshoot with the lovely Sarah Mellerish of Let's Cook Scotland and absolutely loved the Apple Tart Tatin she was making on the day of the shoot.
This is super easy to make and totally delicious. The Plum, Cinnamon and Red Wine go together so beautifully and create a delicious taste sensation!
If you donít like beetroot I hope that youíll still be tempted by the idea of a brownie and give these a try. They really are delicious and hit the spot with a good cup of brew. We added a dollop of Gills home made mango and chili honey salsa to accompany the brownies and give them a little kick on the side and it was amazing!
These Choc Chip Hot Cross Buns are a delicious twist on the traditional spiced fruit bun.  We absolutely loved these warmed oozing with chocolate!
delicious, mouthwatering Strawberry and Orange Trifle. Perthshire offers some fantastic fruit picking farms so you can use your own picked fruit!  This so simple to make and its a great choice if you donít have a lot of time.
This lemon posset is a stunning dessert and is just as tasty with brambles as it is with strawberries.
Our delicious rich chocolate orange cake from vivacious cakes was to celebrate our first birthday and it was delicious!!
Two Pots of Delicious Chocolate Heaven
3 baked apple doughnuts dripping with Halloween icing
The Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt Tart from East Haugh House Hotel is the best chocolate tart ever!
Delicious Pumpkin loaf

Cakes and Bakes Recipes

We know that summer heralds the start of salads, diets and healthy eating but our motto in Small City office is 'A little of what you fancy does you good!'.  And we fancy cake. All the time. 

Holly, being new to the team, was tasked with researching our archive and after a whole heap of oooos and aaaaahhhhhs coming her corner of the room we decided an entire gallery dedicated to Gill's cakes and bakes was the perfect way to introduce summer. 

Picture yourself under a blue sky, checked picnic blanket rolled on lush green grass, unpacking your delicious array of homemade cakes and bakes.  Truly what nature intended.

You can find recipes for all of these amazing goodies here on Small City Recipes (we'd never axe the recipes to save a few quid!) and as always, leave your comments and please do share this with your friends.

You can also share your photographs and ideas with us. We'd love to see them. As always, tag them #PerthLoveFest and we'll scatter them around our own social media.
