Every year, in the month of June, Pride Month is celebrated all across the globe to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community. With their notion, “love is love”, vibrant rainbow flag, and pride parades, adding colour to your dishes and desserts is perfect for celebrating the wide spectrum of love represented by the community.

If you want to celebrate Pride Month in style, the best way to do so is to make themed desserts and fill your kitchen with vibrant colours. Be it the classic rainbow cake or something as quick and simple as an ice cream sundae, here are some inspirations to channel your creativity to literally add rainbows to your desserts.

Rainbow Cake

Rainbow cake is a classic dessert that is popularly made during Pride Month. With seven coloured layers, you can make a rainbow cake that resembles the flag of the LGBTQ+ community. All you need to do is make seven equal portions of the batter, add one rainbow colour to each, and bake. You can then stack the layers using whipped cream and garnish with vanilla frosting.

Pride Flag Cookies

If you want to be a part of the Pride parade, baking cookies would be the best option, as they can be carried easily without the fear of ruining the icing. All you need to do to bake these cookies is to knead the dough for classic vanilla cookies and add a food colour to it. You can then bake a batch and decorate the top of the cookies with sprinkles and coloured icing that can represent any of the Pride flags, be it the classic rainbow or dedicated flags for trans, non-binary, and so on.

Coloured Cupcakes

To have a Pride party at your home, you can make themed cupcakes. There are many ways to make coloured cupcakes. You can choose to add food colour to the batter, decorate the baked cupcakes with coloured frosting, arrange coloured cupcakes to spell out “Love”, and the list can go on and on when you get creative.

Rainbow Jell-O Shots

If you want to make the celebration a little boozy, rainbow Jell-O shots are the right choice for you. You can take your favourites, but choose the ones that can give you the colours for the rainbow, blend them, and mix in vodka. With just a few ingredients, you can celebrate Pride Month with your loved ones.

Pride Popsicles

Popsicles are the heart of the summer season. To align the popsicles with the Pride theme, you can either freeze the colours in layers and turns to get one rainbow in a popsicle, or you can make seven popsicles, each of a different colour. Just blend the fruits, add a squeeze of lemon and freeze to lick the goodness of popsicles.

Another summer dessert you can make for Pride Month is a fruit sundae. You can take scoops of different ice cream colours. For example, make a sundae with ice cream flavours like blackcurrant, strawberry, kiwi, pineapple, vanilla, blueberry, and so on. Top the sundae with coloured sprinkled and rainbow-coloured chopped fruits to make the themed dessert even more indulgent.
