The Two Lynseys Ready for a Busy Afternoon
My best friend Alison is an amazing cook, as is my daughter, and so they set about baking cup cakes, lemon drizzle cakes, carrot muffins, banoffee cakes, raspberry and white chocolate cakes and a whole lot more including a huge fresh cream strawberry sponge. My sister was in charge of scones that included date and walnut, cheese, fruit varieties and of course the ever popular plain ones served with lashings of cream and topped with a strawberry.My contribution was a batch of Rocky Road as I'm not much of a cook but I did make the 4 of us matching aprons so we looked the part.
The Guests Arrive
The Kids Enjoy Playing in the Garden
About 30 friends, relatives and neighbours turned up, some baring more lovely food, and, as we were blessed with a lovely sunny afternoon, people spilled out into the garden, which we had bedecked with bunting, to enjoy the lovely weather.
It was great to see everyone chatting and enjoying themselves while having a nice cup of tea from a china cup and lush cakes displayed on vintage cake stands.
