When we arrived, a pleasant lady brought over a small tray filled with tea cups, a milk jug and a cake - 'here we go sweetheart'. Granted, it was wooden, but April was happy as Larry as she 'made tea' for Lucie, Jenny and I. Nice touch ladies.
Lime and pistachio cake with orange blossom, served with greek yogurt and pistachios: This was Lucie's choice. She reported a very moist cake with subtle hints of orange coming through.
Apple and blueberry cake with double whipped cream: Jenny was very pleased with her choice; again an ultra moist cake with a slight tang from the fruit.
Raspberry and almond cake with raspberries and cream: Bakewell fiend strikes again - I cannot resist this combo. A nice crunch to the surface, soft cake and lovely pockets of fruit.
Chocolate brownie: We all took one of these home for our significant others, although I did steal a bite - purely for research purposes... I expected this to be quite stodgy, however I was surprised to find it was actually rather light with a gooey centre.
Bara Brith: A beast of a cake - not for the faint-hearted! I took this home to enjoy with a nice cup of tea later that evening. I had this slightly warm with butter (as suggested). Absolutely delightful but very filling indeed! Dad-fodder...
