If you have been following me for a long time, or just know me very well, you’ll know that I absolutely love to bake. Baking every now and again is a really nice pastime for me, although I don’t think I could do it professionally. For one, I never try my own food. Because I don’t eat cakes. Weirdo, I know. But those who do try my food always tells me they love it. Not to blow my own trumpet, but….. *trumpet sounds*.
For special occasions, I’ll always bake something for my family or close friends. Recently for a family member’s birthday, myself and my mother (The Baking Queen, from whom I learned it all) decided that we were going to put together an afternoon tea for her. I vlogged the day over on my YouTube channel if you want to check it out, but for now, here are the photos!
If anyone would be interested in recipes or tutorials, I’d be happy to provide them for you! On this particular day we did cream puffs, chocolate covered strawberries, butterfly cakes, scones with jam and cream and also some fruit tartlets. And of course I made them vegan where I could, do you think anyone noticed? NOPE! Tastes just as good.
My favourite places to go for afternoon tea in London is Fortnum and Mason’s and also Harrods. In Dublin, I would recommend the Westbury Hotel, which is by far the best place in Dublin for afternoon tea.
We’ll be back to regular content this week after my break last week, and I am so excited to share with you some of the exciting things I’ve been working on! Stay tuned for more, my next upload will be this Wednesday!
Peace and love xx
