With Wimbledon in full swing, the nation has once again become tennis mad, and the country’s bakers have been showing their support for Andy Murray through some inventive tennis inspired bakes.
BAKO have been looking on Twitter for the most tempting Wimbledon treats to inspire your tennis-loving customers.
Strawberries and cream go hand in hand with the tradition of Wimbledon, and Shakey Cakey Leeds have got the game point with these strawberry and cream cupcakes. After all, what could be more British than a light and airy sponge, topped with a generous helping of cream and adorned with fresh strawberries?

Shakey Cakey also created these tennis cupcakes decorated in the style of tennis balls using yellow sugar paste and some piped icing lines. Simple yet very effective!

As well as looking at the region’s bakers, we’ve also discovered Wimbledon-inspired desserts that would definitely have the ‘advantage’ on any menu, created by some of the UK’s most imaginative pastry chefs. Josh Eggleton of The Pony and Trap in Bristol has created this innovative dessert made using the traditional Wimbledon-inspired flavours of Pimms jelly topped with cucumber sorbet.

We also spotted this tennis ball inspired cheesecake from Great British Bake Off winner, Frances Quinn. Buttery biscuit creates the base for this unique cheesecake filled with a smooth strawberries and cream centre. Topped with lemon sherbet to create the iconic tennis ball colour, this cheesecake would certainly call game, set and match on your menu!
