These Pimm’s cupcakes are such a delight to eat and with all the extra fruit they smell delicious too! They are a real summer treat to enjoy with friends.
I would be lying if I took all of the credit for these Pimm’s cupcakes so I’m not going to. A friend of mine, an old client whom I have kept in touch with, came up with this idea and what a fantastic idea it was! She got the idea of the hidden strawberry from my Prosecco cupcakes.
I love drinking Pimm’s in the summer as it is so refreshing and I love eating all of the fruit at the end. My Prosecco cupcakes with the hidden strawberry did so well on the blog that I wanted to do that again. I made the cake itself very citrusy by adding lemon and lime zest as when I have Pimm’s I always have it with lemonade.
I was so pleased with my Pimm’s cupcakes that I took them round to my friend’s house where we had a picnic. One of my friends joked and said “Are they calorie free?”. I said “No but they have 5 different fruits in if you want to count them as one of your 5 a day!” 😂 They both really liked the cakes and wanted more!
The Pimm’s frosting came out with a really nice glossy finish. I’m getting quite into my boozy frostings lately, check out my blueberry and lemon muffins with a limoncello frosting. Have you done any boozy frostings? I’d love to know if you have in the comments below!
My only tip is with these Pimm’s cakes is if you’re making them for guest then decorate them on the day as the fruit may go a little dry if left for too long.
