All for the love of cake.
Sadly, there was a touch of rain on our parade (though luckily not our beautiful tablecloth!) as some friends were unable to make it. I thought perhaps instead I could spread an online blanket under the tree of the internet, and we could share the recipes - et voila, the DIY Blogger Afternoon Tea was born.
As you'll be able to see, our afternoon tea contained all of the 3 major food groups; Savouries, Scones & Sweets, and much much more than even we chatterers could eat.
The tables in La Mancha's function room simply groaned with platters of delicious delectables.
I've already been fielding cries of "When's the next one?" so watch this space. Just give my waistband a chance to recover, promise?
Every one that came and also so kindly supported us, I've tried to blog stalk for lovely tea recipes, but I would adore any more recipes links in the comments below. Or Tweeted. Or cooked for me to try (I joke. Mostly).
Once again, thank you, thank you, thank you.
