I have come to realize what a lovely occasion afternoon tea is. I'm not saying that I don't eat lovely things on a regular basis but to actually put aside time to sit down and really enjoy a good British afternoon tea is really a delight. Here are some of the treats William and I made for the family afternoon tea. Included are raspberry and lemon curd tarts with sweet shortcrust and extremely vanilla cupcakes with lemon curd butter cream icing. I am also rather pleased with my improving piping skills. What do you think?
