National Cream Tea Day: my reviews

World's largest scone?

Apologies for the two blog posts today but I just made the shocking discovery that it is National Cream Tea Day and somehow despite my all encompassing love for scones, jam and cream, I wasn’t aware of this. Shouldn’t the Queen make a speech or something?

Well… it won’t catch me out next year but in the meantime, here are some reviews of Cream Teas at National Trust properties I posted on my old Cream Tea review blog (I told you I was a fan!).

Weekly Photo Challenge: Big

My response to this week’s ‘Big’ photo challenge is this – The World’s Largest Scone*.

Me and my friend Kate snapped this at the Inaugural Cream Tea Festival in Cockington Village near Torquay in 2008.

We drove down to Torquay from Nottingham very early in the morning and we were rewarded with this sight. Oh and by buying a cream tea which won us a hotel stay in the Lake District!

Yes the scone looks rather unappetising and it loses somewhat of it’s spectacle when you realised it was propped up by Tupperware boxes at the back but nonetheless it made for one of the most memorable, pleasant and joyously odd days in my life.
