Calling all ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and afternoon tea fans.. I’m so excited to bring you this post!
Before I go any further: special thanks and a shout-out to Natalie (pictured with me below) for this amazing & very thoughtful gift! ❤️
There isn’t much I love more than an afternoon tea… No-thanks to Covid, we haven’t been able to go out to any this year! 😭
So, I decided to buy a Sara Miller cake stand (pictured in top photo) as a way of bringing afternoon teas to us, if we can’t go to them…
I wasted no time in putting Natalie’s present to good use, by making an at-home afternoon tea for me and my household. Isn’t it gorgeous!?!
Tell me more about the afternoon tea
All sandwiches, pastries and cakes were bought from M&S Food Hall, listed below…
M&S Collection Santa Hat Profiteroles (top row)
This was a unanimous standout favourite… Choux pastries filled to the brim with delicious raspberry crème pâtissière & delicately topped with raspberry flavoured white chocolate fondant.
Victoria sandwiches mini-cake (second row)
We usually always go for scones (whichever way you pronounce it), but we thought we’d mix things up a little with these mini Victoria sandwiches.
A butter sponge, combined with a strawberry jam and buttercream centre, topped with light dusting of sugar.
Strawberry Cornish Clotted Cream Sundaes (second row)
Delightful. We absolutely loved this.
A butter pastry filled with Cornish clotted cream buttercream and a sprinkle of dried strawberries.
Who knew straight up cholesterol 😂 and dried strawberry crumbs could be so delightful!?
Seriously though, very moreish.
Cheesecake Bites (top row)
Vanilla cheesecake bites dusted with edible glitter.
Sandwiches (bottom row)
Ham & Cheese
Egg & Cress
Cheese and tomato
What was in the afternoon tea hamper?
Okay, now – back to the hamper (pictured above)…
There was also a bag of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ crunchy mint dark chocolate discs 😋, a notebook (as I love to write) and a pen. 📓🖊🥰
