Wimbledon teacakes

July seems to be gifting us the perfect ‘staying indoors and watch sport on the telly’ weather. So thank goodness we've whipped up the perfect 'sitting on the sofa with a cup of tea' treat. We don't normally do 'themed' products. Although I'm not sure why as every time we do we LOVE them and you go nuts for them. And this year's 'smash' hit is...our 'Wimbledon Teacake’

The new teacake

When I first fell in love with chocolate it was the shiny, glossy colour pops that did it. Those delicate shells that sparkle as though they’ve been polished, a small nibble and the liquid centre would seep out- a rich caramel or a sharp fruit. The sort of chocolate that’s meant to be admired then devoured. I wanted to mix that creativity and luxury into a teacake – whipping up a treat of soft sponge base, a fresh swirl of marshmallow, oozing soft centre and a delicate layer of hand painted chocolate.
