Ok, so its been a while, but, as promised, a few sneaky peeks inside the gorgeous book 'Tea and Cake' Recipes for the perfect afternoon tea, illustrated by Emma Block.
The book is filled with beautiful illustrations of tea cups, cupcakes, macaroons, ornate teapots and cakes cakes cakes galore, yum!
With planning ideas and tips on how to make the perfect cuppa with a humorous guide to tea strength including 'straight up tea', dirty dishwater' and 'stewed/wallpaper stripper'!
Several chapters totally dedicated to recipes after the initial introduction covering sandwiches and savouries, cakes, cupcakes and scones, biscuits, macaroons and much more, ooh and a lovely cheeky chapter on 'grown up drinks' at the back featuring 'moroccan minteani' and 'brandy breakfast'.
Whether buying the book for the recipes or purely for the lovely collaged illustrations throughout, you wont be disappointed.
Its just a problem knowing which recipe to try first!
