My mother liked my birthday high tea so much she wanted one too on her birthday. She made did all the shopping and made all the savoury food, I concentrated on the sweet things & decorating. Some of my favorite things to do ….
This weekend my mother celebrated her birthday, a week earlier because of mothersday, and hosted a high tea for the occasion. Last year I got ill and wasn’t able to help her with decorations and baking but this year it all came together perfectly.
We served lots of green & yellow candy, scones, vanilla & chocolate cupcakes, apple cinnamon muffins, banana bread muffins, mini club sandwiches, salmon sandwiches, cucumber sandwiches, chocolate, cookies, strawberries, mini pigs in a blanket and quiches.
A few things went wrong with the scones (they were intentionally smaller but I had a hard time figuring out the baking time since it wasn’t my oven I had to throw quite a few out) and the cupcake toppings (i forgot to bring my mixer along so i didn’t think it tasted ok enough but the guests seemed to like it).
