Wimbledon Inspired Cupcakes

Wimbledon CupcakesHi, I’m Helen & I’m very pleased to be writing my first post for PinAddicts. I’m a Mum of 3 from the North-West, love all things food & cake and unsuprisingly, am a massive Pinterest fan. I will be posting here every Monday, sharing my raging sweet tooth and enticing you with the huge array of cakey and baking goodness that Pinterest has to offer. Mondays are strictly a diet free zone!

Today also sees the start of Wimbledon – the fortnight where we all turn into tennis buffs and pretend we have been following the tennis all year round.

I’ve been having a play around today with some Wimbledon inspired cupcakes – a tennis ball, a racquet and some dodgy looking strawberries and cream. The grass effect was made by mixing some green dusting powder into desiccated coconut.

Over the course of the next fortnight, over 28,000kg of strawberries and 7000 litres of fresh cream will be consumed at Wimbledon. No wonder then, that there are hundreds of Wimbledon inspired food pics over Pinterest. I particularly like the look of the Strawberry Hazelnut Tart, Wimbledon Macarons and the Pimms Cucumber Cooler – Wimbers wouldn’t be complete without Pimms, would it?
