Tea & Sympathy Cupcake Competition

Morning all, happy Monday, give us a smile, the weekend’s over but it’s not that bad – especially as we are announcing a brand new create-a-cupcake competition! It’s pretty straightforward – we want you to suggest traditional British flavors for us to turn into bitesized baked yummies. We put our heads together at T&S HQ over the weekend and came up with a few ideas of our own: Guiness, Rhubarb & Custard and Maltesers got us excited, while Shepherd’s Pie and Branston Pickle  got a firm thumbs down…

We need to confirm the prize, but most likely it’ll be a pot of tea and a couple of your little creations at Tea & Sympathy! As well as getting the honor to help name the beauty.

So please let us know by commenting below, or tweeting us @TeaAndSympathy, or on facebook.

Really looking forward to your suggestions!

One day, all this could be yours... Just give it a great British flavor!

  1. I have two ideas…
    1) FlapJack Cupcake: a yellow made with oats and sweetened with golden syrup with browned butter icing, dusted with brown sugar

    2) Hot Toddy Cupcake: a clove and cinnamon spice cake with a whiskey flavored egg-custard filling and honey-vanilla icing

  2. I’ve got a Baileys Cheesecake sitting in my fridge (recipe coming soon!) so I’m going to suggest a Baileys Irish Cream Cupcake – perhaps with a green fondant shamrock on top, perfect for St Paddys Day 🙂

  3. Not sure if it’s cakey enough, but I’d love to see an Apple Crumble. Maybe with an apple filling and a custard-influenced frosting? Or the other way ’round?

  4. I have a recipe for an apple and rhubarb loaf that I’ve been dying to bake- I think the idea’s taken from the good old-fashioned apple/rhubarb crumble! Would love to see it in cupcake form 🙂
    Also, my grandma’s own (very, very old) lemon cake with tangy lemon syrup always seems to resonate British tradition with me!

  5. Thank you for all the great suggestions. We’ll be announcing a shortlist for our #CupcakeCompetition over on Twitter (@TeaAndSympathy) throughout the course of the day. We’ll then be asking the lucky ones who make it on to the list to name their creations before choosing a winner. We’ll post the full list here on facebook, after we’ve tweeted them all!

  7. Thank you for all your fantastic suggestions, and congratulations to those who made the shortlist. After much deliberation, the overall winner is Viki Noe’s ‘Black & Tan’; a delicious Guinness & dark chocolate creation – we just couldn’t turn down the thought of giving this a try!
