  • Afternoon Tea Bus

    By vintage on 27 July, 2015 in AFTERNOON TEA

    Hello Darling's.... Afternoon Tea is one of my favourite things to do (and also my main diet)!!!  I have been lucky enough to be able to try many afternoon teas all over the world, but I must say I have never experienced Afternoon Tea quite like this one! It was my sisters 30th coming up, and trying to find a fun and unique idea was a bit of a task. But when I got my Afternoon Tea Council newsletter with some information about the Afternoon Tea Bus I knew it was the perfect thing to do. The bus is extremely...

  • Zebra Cake Recipe...

    By vintage on 13 November, 2013 in AFTERNOON TEA, FABULOUS FOOD

    We love to bake but love eating cake much more! So when I was told about this recipe I couldn't wait to give it a whirl. It looked quite complicated to make but actually the recipe was relatively easy.... I would love to have a go at a 'Rainbow' version of this cake too!  This cake would be wonderful to serve when you have guests round for tea or as a birthday cake for a special occasion. This recipe isn't iced, but you could add a butter cream or  chocolate frosting for that extra hit of sweetness... Mmmmm!!! The Zebra cake is very...

    By vintage on 15 October, 2012 in AFTERNOON TEA, FABULOUS FOOD

    Most weekends we like to make a trip to 'Borough Market'....in London just a across the road from London Bridge tube! If you haven't been and are a food lover and love good quality ingredients then you must visit this fabulous place. We love to indulge in the delicious hot food and cakes on offer. A few years ago I found the most amazing cake stall, a large sized block of cake caught my eye and ever since then I have been hooked and make regular visits back to the cake filled stall. So if you haven’t heard of 'Lamingtons...

    By vintage on 10 August, 2012 in AFTERNOON TEA

    Every time me & the fashion sorority girls get together the first thing we do is put the kettle on & have a good old natter over a brew! (we even like to drink our champagne from tea cups too).. I am an avid fan of the ‘Afternoon Tea’ tradition; I love the care and time put into this stylish & very sophisticated ritual. Yes I drink tea from mugs but nothing beats drinking a well-blended tea from a bone china teacup whilst nibbling on the most delicious and scrumptious finger sandwiches & delicate cakes. I have tried quite a...
