Today was our second birthday. Yes, that’s right we’ve officially been eating cake as a group for two whole years.
Back to a smaller meeting at a member’s house today, where everyone brought a cake of their choice.
The room was set with mis-matched crockery.
It didn’t take long before the doorbell was ringing with eager cake ladies.
To avoid sugar highs, we started off the afternoon with artisan breads from Patisserie Jacob, cheeses, crisps and grapes.
Alison had her new plate ready for the cakey action.
Our ‘waitress’ was a twelve year old niece of one of the cake ladies and she did an amazing job to make sure we had napkins, cutlery and lashings of tea.
The lemongrass and marigold tea was the hit of the day with the white pomegranate a close second.
Then it was cake time.
One by one, the waitress brought the cakes through to the lounge with a big smile on her face.
We just got stuck in.
After 2 years of eating cake, there is no shyness any more. It’s just a case of getting a knife and getting a slice (or two or three…..)
A successful afternoon with wonderful tea and cake. Here’s to lots of further meetings in the coming year.
