Who doesn't love a high tea?! Here at BMTB we think they are fab, if you are a long time reader you will know that we have thrown a few. Queen's birthday weekend is only days way and I think it is the perfect excuse to do some baking and round up a few friends to enjoy a traditional high tea.
To throw a great high tea you need to prepare a mix of savoury and sweet treats, bite sized and finger foods are best as they are tidy to eat. At our high tea picnic last year I made some delicious apple and pork sausage rolls, Mel made some little mince pies and feta and spinach pinwheels, of course petite sandwiches are also a must!
There are so many sweet treats on the blog suitable for high tea, some of our favourites are passionfruit and lemon tarts with white chocolate ganache, raspberry melting moments, strawberry champagne cupcakes are great for special occasions, mini bundt cakes, caramel brulee slice, tan slice and lemon cheesecake slice are all divine and of course you need scones with cream and jam - it wouldn't be high tea without them.
If you do host a high tea we'd love to hear about it and we love to see your pictures, our friends at Food TV would also love to see your high tea pictures, in fact if you share your pictures with them through their facebook page it will put you into the draw to win some great prizes as part of their 'We Want Your Food' competition, which starts any day now! So go on get baking and then sit down and enjoy a cuppa while you enjoy the spoils of your hard work.
