The first idea for your Wimbledon tea party comes in the form of these delicious Strawberry & Cream topped Pimm’s cupcakes. This idea is sure to get your guests in the summer mood by mixing two of Wimbledon’s most famous treats together in a delicious yet refreshing manner. Better yet, this idea is relatively quick to make and will make you feel as though you’re sat on top of Henman Hill as soon as you take your first bite.
This citrus based sponge has been brushed with strawberry jam, followed by the Pimms and mint buttercream being added to the top, and completed by adding strawberry, a slice of cucumber and a mint leaf. These fruits could easily be interchanged for others (EG a grape or orange slice) depending on your preference.
For your cupcakes, you could use our Liberty Flower Patterned Cupcake Cases to give your cupcakes and additional summer-time touch.
