On my best friend’s birthday we usually go out for afternoon tea but this year I wanted to switch it up a little bit and decided to attempt to bake it instead. 

Above is the result;

  • Sandwiches (egg and cress, cheese, cucumber, ham)
  • Scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam
  • Macaroons with summer fruits filling (recipe here)
  • Chocolate brownie bites (recipe here)
  • Banana loaves with toffee topping and white chocolate curls (recipe here)
  • White chocolate and raspberry cheesecakes (recipe here)
  • Classic Victoria sponge cake with vanilla cream and fresh strawberries (recipe here)
  • Fresh fruit (blueberries, blackberries and grapes)
  • Pink champagne
  • Earl grey tea
