I also did quite a bit of baking for a tea party that my daughter had organised in my honour. She invited lots of my friends (and plenty of hers too), made a lovely poster for the front door and then just hoped that someone would make all the food. Luckily I was aware of the plans as she is not particularly good at keeping secrets, and my mum was here to help too. Mum brought more vintage china with her, and her special Cornish flag bunting, which is apparently what every good tea party needs.
I baked some of Edd Kimber's beautifully green pistachio and raspberry financiers, but unfortunately did not take any pictures. These were moist with a lovely flavour, and I am now waiting to be given an excuse to make them again. I need to take pictures for the blog, and maybe that is reason enough to make more.
