Have cake and eat it!

Hello everyone....did you have a great weekend?

Perhaps it's snowing in your area

Perhaps not....

I've had a very busy weekend....

Because a few weeks back, I had this romantic idea that it would be lovely to have a  Valentine's day afternoon tea with Champagne, lovely cakes and savouries.

But I had forgotten how much one needs to bake and prepare for this kind of thing.
So I spent the entire Saturday in the kitchen baking.

Goat's cheese filled phyllo pastry tarts

These are Lavender cupcakes made with lavender grown in my garden, and then topped with vanilla butter frosting and yes, I did use those 'over the top' baking accessories!

Much quaffing of champagne and eating copious amounts of cake was done by all.

So instead of interiors, I've given you cake!

Happy Valentine's Day!
