Serving up a treat with tennis-themed Wimbledon Cupcakes

Celebrate the tennis event of the year with specially created Wimbledon Cupcakes from The Hummingbird Bakery kitchens!

Grassy lawns, tennis balls, racquets and strawberries… Sunny weather or not, when Wimbledon is on, you know the English summer has arrived!

And to announce the arrival of the UK’s grand slam tennis tournament, we’ll be baking fresh vanilla cupcakes with a range of four tennis-themed designs. Wimbledon Cupcakes will be available in all stores until 8th July 2012.  

Strawberries and cream:

A fondant strawberry is the finishing touch to smooth vanilla frosting.

On the lawn:

We use a special piping nozzle to get the effect of green, grassy turf and complete these cupcakes with a mini fondant tennis ball.
