Wimbledon Sweet Treat Recipes

The best signal that Summer has arrived? When Wimbledon begins! Despite the wet weather, Wimbledon is under way in London. With England knocked out of the Euros, all English sporting hopes are now left to focus upon a British win in tennis instead!

Wimbledon has long been famous for a typically British sweet treat - strawberries and cream! But this year, why not mix it up a bit and explore more tennis inspired bakes, treats and puddings. Hopefully adding some extra summer feeling to this wet and windy Wimbledon week!

Tennis Ball Biscuits
With such a simple but effective icing design, incorporate the Wimbledon theme into your biscuit bakes this week. Sure to please those you wish to share them with!

Pimms Jellies
Another Wimbledon favourite? Pimms! This classic English Summer drink has been turned into a delightful jelly desert by Roz on thefoodiecoupleblog.com. We're certainly trying this one out!

Roasted Stawberry and Cream Ice Lolly
We adore this quirky twist upon that Wimbledon favourite. The idea of roasted strawberries in this recipe is already getting our mouths watering. We think these homemade ice lollies will be delicious come rain or shine. 

Tennis Ball Macaroons
Take any simple macaroon recipe and give it two iced stripes on top to capture the Wimbledon theme. These bakes will have you calling 'More Macaroons Please' in no time!

Stawberry and Cream Cupcakes
Another twist upon that traditional Wimbledon desert, but in a traditional English way. Cupcakes! Serve afternoon tea whilst you watch the tennis unfold and we're sure these strawberry and cream cupcakes won't be around for long. Get the recipe today.
