This weekend was Caroline’s Baby Shower. The brief was simple; 10 girls looking for a delicious afternoon tea.
On the menu was:
12 Mini Vanilla Cupcakes 12 Mini Chocolate Cupcakes 10 Lemon Fondant Fancies 10 Plain Scones
The ovens were fired up on Friday afternoon to get all the goodies baked.
First up was the cupcakes. We split the batter and made 50:50 chocolate and vanilla.
Decorated with an assortment of sprinkles but focussed on pink as the mother-to-be is expecting a baby girl.
We got the pink fondant out and added some little pink footprints, and finished off the whole batch with a sprinkling of edible glitter. Because there is no such thing as too much glitter.
Next came the Lemon Fondant Fancies. These are new to the menu here at Martha’s Tea Party (we’d recommend trying the version with Lavender too). They are tricky cakes to cover, you would never believe the amount of Fondant Icing Sugar required! But that didn’t stop us covering the sponges with lashings of lemon yellow goodness.
We sent off the cakes boxed up with 10 scones (which we forgot to photograph) and two crates of Vintage China ready for an afternoon of tea, cake and girly gossip.
We hope a good time was had by all!
