Mum is coming on Sunday and I am doing an afternoon tea.
I know I want sandwiches, scones, cakes and teas but what else can I add to make it more special and filling - there will be 4 adults and 2 children, so I need easy things to make.
What shall I out in the sandwiches?
And what cakes?
Anything else to add?

When I had afternoon tea there was pastry tarts. Mine was mozerella and tomato. Only light and small, about fist size.

Sandwiches I would do:
On white: cucumber, salmon & lemon & pepper, coronation chicken,
On brown: ham, cheese & pickle
Are you going to make little cakes or big ones & slice? Carrot, lemon, coffe & walnut, choc muffins...

I really want afternoon tea now! Oh another one is those coloured macaroons or meringues topped with cream and fruit or chocolate

Sandwiches, I would do a selection of: cucumber; cheese; ham; beef; smoked salmon and cream cheese.
Cakes anything really. I'd say you want fairly 'solid' cakes so they can be cut into fingers and eaten. Fruit cake is a good one.

How about some cheese straws?

Mmm cheese straws sounds good I have a recipe for rosemary and seal salt ones!

I can't add anything that hasn't already been suggested I'm afraid. I love a cream tea though!

Make sure there's plenty of clotted cream and jam for the scones
Can i come please? this all sounds too yummy.
