Home Made Afternoon Tea

Last week I was invited to a lovely home made afternoon tea by one of my best friends Sophie - who has just started a student food blog Chef To Impress.  She wanted to do a post about hosting your own afternoon tea, so we all went along to sample it.  

Doesn't the table look great?  

Fresh flowers always give a light and summery touch to a table!  

As we got tucked into our cava Sophie put the final touches to the table before we tucked in! 

We had a whole load of sandwiches to dig into: Smoked salmon and cream cheese (my favourite), ham and brie, cucumber and philadelphia and Sophie's own creation of peanut butter and nutella. 

Next up was the home made scones - which were amazing!  Not too big but enough for you to slap on plenty of raspberry jam and clotted cream!  

Sophie had also made us not one but three cakes to pick from!  A chocolate brownie, cinnamon role and a lemon drizzle cake.  

The lemon drizzle was the winner for me- sometimes cakes can be a bit too sweet for me so I love getting ones with a bit of a tart twist to it.  Both the cake and the icing was sweet but balanced with the lemon flavour.  

It was a lovely afternoon, with just as lovely girls and scrummy food!  Big thank you for Sophie for having us!
