The Perfect Serve for Wimbledon!

June 28, 2021

The Perfect Serve for Wimbledon!

The perfect serve for Wimbledon – a serving of homemade Pimm’s Cupcakes – thanks Janet!    Simply add to our Madeira cake mix the zest of 1 lemon and 1 lime, 50ml Pimm’s, 150ml of water and 60ml of vegetable oil.  Janet’s topping was made with 50g unsalted butter, softened, 400g icing sugar with 2 tbsp. Pimm’s and 1 tbsp. milk – the strawberry’s on top are compulsory – well, it’s Wimbledon fortnight!

Oh hello – well spotted by a Wright’s fan at Wimbledon – our Plain Flour making an appearance at the Pizza Stand there!  Nice to see SW19 are keeping their standards up – apart from the fact that someone’s takeaway Pimm’s got in the way but that’s Wimbledon for you!  

These Rum Truffles made with our Chocolate Fudge cake mix, yield around 30 good sized goodies for sharing around the TV and perfect for pushing your heart back into your mouth during the battles on Centre Court!

Scones, a crumbly creation are best served warm, fresh from your oven they are also good re-warmed in a microwave for 10 seconds perfect for a snack when there is a change of ends. Served sometimes sweet with raisins, currants, dates or cherries. They can be enjoyed as a savoury alternative baked with grated cheese or just perfectly plain with butter, jam &/or cream. 

How about serving our superb Strawberry Madeira Mousse Cake as Centre Court? Bound to cause a racquet amongst your guests if you are having a get together! Made with our Madeira mix and a real taste of summer.

Thanks Linda for sharing your wonderful Wimbledon cake made with our Madeira Mix in a Hemisphere Cake Pan available from Lakeland.  We just love it Linda – especially the New Balls Please message on the front!

Can I thank Baker Mike for a twist on our classic Madeira with strawberries & cream cake to celebrate the start of Wimbledon? Mike used our Madeira and decorated his cake with real strawberries, cream and a dusting of icing sugar – delish & certainly something to tiggle your tastebuds during the tennis!

You could always buy some toppers ahead of the finals – Poppy’s Cupcakes put these together for their long list of clients – ahead of the game – in every sense! Thanks Poppy’s Cupcakes.

Oh go on – you know you want to. Completely indulgent splits, light and airy with a sweet centre – jam of your choice. Probably the easiest recipe I have ever followed and the biggest wow factor! Our Devon Splits recipe is perfect for summer.

So let’s celebrate with cupcakes, splits filled with strawberry jam – anything strawberry will do – oh and a Pimms or two too!
