Afternoon Tea Recipes
Afternoon tea is such a wonderful way to slow down and enjoy an afternoon with good company. My parents took me to a lovely hotel in Belfast for my 30th birthday for afternoon tea and it’s a day I won’t forget. We chatted, we nibbled, we drank pots of tea. With Mother’s Day coming up, it’s a lovely excuse to get baking and treat your mum to a homemade afternoon tea. Here are my top recipes, perfect for a Mother’s Day afternoon tea.

About the Giveaway
What better way to serve your homemade afternoon tea, than on a beautiful cake stand and with a cake server. Steamer Trading are giving one lucky reader these gorgeous prizes.
A beautiful two-tier slate serving stand with glass dome lid (rrp £46.99). It’s perfect for cakes, cheeses, fruit or any food to be displayed! The The acacia wood base and cloche glass dome can be used separately from the slate stand. It has two natural slate 18cm plates held on two tiers by a central black metal spindle.
It’s a really sturdy and elegant cake stand and I love the look of the dark slate against the wood and glass. The stand is absolutely perfect for afternoon tea, but I love it so much that I’ve kept it on my counter full of fruit! It’s too pretty to tuck away until I make cakes.
The winner will also receive this stunning designer Sophie Conran Cake Server Rivelin (rrp £19.49). This pretty cake server is ideal for serving afternoon tea. It’s really elegant, but also super-sturdy and even comes in a lovely gift box.
