More Than a Scone of the Week

Today is my Mum’s Birthday. We used to have a weekly trip out to local cafe or tea shop for a scone and a drink. I always wrote a “Scone of the Week” blog post in which we’d rate the quality of the scone baking wherever we went, but that’s not possible at the moment. We are locked down and and our favourite places are closed. We had to come up with something safe, and fun to celebrate so instead of going out, afternoon tea was delivered to her!

K and I made some dainty little sandwiches this morning: smoked salmon and cream cheese; ham and mustard; cheese and chutney; egg mayonnaise.

I baked my favourite cheese scones and some fruit ones too, which were served with jam and whipped cream.

There were cakes too: my lemon drizzle cake and daughter’s chocolate brownies…….

…..but the star bake was this magnificent celebration cake that Daughter made yesterday. It looked stunning and tasted great too – a deliciously light moist Victoria sponge. She makes the most amazing cakes.

There was a small glass of fizz too…..well it was a celebration!

Of course Mum couldn’t manage to eat the whole feast by herself. I brought some home for the rest of us.She thoroughly enjoyed her surprise. It was lovely to do something special.

I live in Northumberland, within sight of the sea and spend my time knitting, crocheting, sewing and trying my hand at different crafts. There's usually a story to share about the things I make.
