As Mother’s Day was rapidly approaching, my sister and I decided the best way to spoil our darling mother and grandmother was to invite them over for a no-nonsense afternoon tea. We threw about some ideas as to what delights are considered the epitome of the traditional British excuse for tea and cake. Narrowing down our menu to finger sandwiches, miniature Victoria Sandwich cakes and scones we dashed to the local supermarket to pick up the ever important teapot and a whole host of ingredients.
Whilst the Victoria sandwiches looked pretty, they were quite mean little suckers to concoct. Due to lack of utensils I was left whipping the cream by hand…. with a fork, which displeased me and my ‘ceps greatly, cutting the rounds of cake out using a glass and slyly using a toothpick as reinforcement during the assembly process (studying Architecture for two and a half years finally paying off).
Hope all the mothers were spoilt like they truly deserve. Much love cupcakes x
