I’m quite looking forward to Wimbledon starting next week as for me that’s when summer starts. I was thinking how nice it would be to have some summery cupcakes to eat whilst watching the tennis and came up with these.
For the cupcakes I tried Dr Oetker’s Shake it! Vanilla Fairy Cake Mix as I was baking with the toddler. The mix is fantastic as you simply add milk and shake. Easy peasy.
After the cakes had cooled I mixed up some royal icing. I seem to have mastered it so am now using it for everything! I took a small amount of the icing out and coloured the remaining yellow. I iced a circle around the edge of each cake and, when it had dried, flooded the inside with the icing.
When the yellow icing had dried I iced a small amount of plain white icing to make the top of each cake look like a tennis ball.
What do you think? The perfect tennis-themed cakes for Wimbledon. Now we just need some sunshine.
