My friend Connie who is not only well on her way to becoming a Dr in Art History is a bit of a baking extraordinaire. Her blog which is aptly called Did Someone Say Cake? is FULL to the brim with her baking experiments. Yesterday she hosted a brilliant tea party in aid of Japan and well, I couldn’t NOT take any photos to share the cakey goodness with you guys right?!
She has the most amazing collection of Baking books so you can imagine how impressive her cakes were. The Hummingbird bakery book is by far, the most awesome one she had, the photos inside are all so droolworthy!
I love a bit of kitsch and I loved her cushions but most of all, the fun flag she made for the Royal wedding. Brilliant!
Now for what you’ve all been waiting for, the cake! She had baked a whopping 20 varieties and even though I arrived late, there was still plenty left!
Chocolate Whoopie Pies
Meringue Whoopie pies with Chestnut filling
Chocolate, Chocolate chips and Cookie cupcake. Calorific but worth every bite!
It isn’t a tea party without proper tea cups and saucers!
My friends and I left the tea party bursting with cake and our tupperware boxes filled with a selection to take home. Seriously, how pretty are they? What a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
