I’m having a vintage tea party phase at the moment. I’ve got my mum rummaging through Cornish charity shops and car boot sales looking for pretty vintage crockery. I never seem to find any good stuff in London, and she picks up some great pieces at bargain prices. I’m also trying out some ‘vintage style’ cakes, and this week’s effort was French fancies. I must admit that I’m not a huge fan of these (too much icing for me), but the kids absolutely love them, and my home made version was a bit hit. They look great on my new ‘Tree of Kashmir’ plate (thanks Ma!).
A good old fashioned battenburg next I think, or maybe a a bakewell tart.
