It’s that time of year again, time to get out the Champagne, Strawberries and Cake (of course).
This year more than ever is the perfect year to celebrate anything and everything possible. So, this one is for the real tennis lovers, the lovers of the Wimbledon spirit, and the non-tennis lovers that will do anything for a celebration after the long year we have had.
Personally, we’d love to celebrate every day with bubbly and cake – name a better duo…
Whether you are supporting your favourite player or just getting into the fun spirit of Wimbledon, we have you covered with the bakes. Here are some delicious bakes that will get you into the swing of Wimbledon.
The perfect match – these flavours together sing summer. Summer is full of fun and what better than a cake full of jam? These will definitely brighten up the rainy, summer days in England. For the perfect finishing touch, add your passion fruit flavour and yellow colour to our Personalise Me Frosting.

You just can’t go wrong with a lemon drizzle. A fresh, sharp sponge with sweet icing – stunning. Depending on the lemon flavour you want you could simply add lemon zest to the cake mixture before baking, or for a more intense flavour you could also sink a sugary lemon juice mixture directly into your cooked sponge by piercing with a skewer and letting the juice soak into the cake before drizzling over the citrus icing. For the finishing touch, why not sprinkle grated lemon zest over the drizzled icing to add colour and texture.

Want to feel like you’re at Wimbledon? Just imagine you’re snacking on one of these fruity cake bars while watching the action on Centre Court. These are perfect for a burst of flavour in one mouthful.
