Who says a slice of cake can't be a co-pilot on all your summer adventures? It might be crazy to schlep a slice of a twelve-layer tower to the seaside, but there are plenty of sturdy, stout, self-contained snack cakes that will be happy to stick by your side—whether you're biking 'round the park, hiking up a mountain top, or lounging by the pool (or in front of the television).
Cut a thick slice or wedge, wrap it in tin foil, and stick it in your bag (but not in your back-pocket!). It'll be ready when—and wherever—you are.
