Afternoon tea

When in England, the first thing that comes to mind is afternoon teas. Actually I spent some time in Leeds while I was in college near the Yorkshire dales and I visited a little cottage near Bolton Abbey where they served afternoon tea. I think I was in cake heaven. They had the yummiest scones and Meringue Pie. That's what started my non-official (for friends and family only) cake baking career. Today, although in the morning, I had the local Mum (notice my English spelling) and Toddler group round for coffee and cake (about 15 mums + kids). I thought it would be a good oppertunity to bake some

topped up with

jam and cream

You can tell from this and yesterday's post that I'm really into baking just now. I think it has to do with the weather turning into autumn. The body needs more comfort food. Well enjoy, while I dive into some left over scones.
