A Tea Party for Breast Cancer Care

The Works
Chocolate and Peppermint Cupcakes
On the 25th of August I held a tea party to raise money for Breast Cancer Care, which gives advice and support to the 49,000 people diagnosed with breast cancer every year. Thanks to my lovely friends, I was able to donate £121.60 to a great cause. I baked all day and was able to offer: chocolate cupcakes with peppermint buttercream icing, mini eclairs, fruit scones, vanilla cupcakes with a cheesecake topping, macaroons, orange polenta cake with an orange and cardamom syrup, a berry and cream Genoese sponge, brownies, a banana loaf and a stilton and broccoli quiche!   P H E W! It was quite an extravaganza with lashings of tea and a few bottles du vin. 

Everything went pretty well considering some of the things were a first attempt. I shall definitely be making some more macaroons in the very near futurethey weren't nearly shiny or smooth enough! 
Macaroons and Brownies

Considering how much food there was, there weren't that many leftovers. Thank you to all who came, and also to the few who didn't make it but donated generously.
