I baked a few other bits and pieces today and used my very pretty Cath Kidston cake stand to turn them into an afternoon tea display. Unfortunately it was only me and the cat at home, so it soon got dismantled again, though people have since been dipping in and very little remains. On the middle tier there are strawberry cheesecake cupcakes, and on top we have chocolate macarons filled with Delia's chocolate fudge icing.
I also made a batch of rock cakes, which could be another entry for Karen's virtual tea party. These were made using the recipe from my trusty Be-Ro cookbook (Grandma swears by it, though never in a foul mouthed manner of course!). My daughter loved them, and wants to have a go at making them herself before too long. I'm quite sure they weren't as good as the ones Grandma makes, but very tasty nonetheless.
Pop over to Lavender and Lovage to see the other Tea Time Treats on offer when Karen does her round up. Next month's challenge will be hosted by Kate from What Kate Baked.
