Host a high tea | Bake scones like a superstar

An indulgent high tea is a great way to celebrate a special occasion. Hosting your own party means you can control the cost and select your favourite finger foods.

Dust off your tiered cake stand, or if you do not own one, use your best platters and spruce up the table with a tablecloth and some decorations. Offer your guests a drink on arrival, coffee or a variety of teas like Earl Grey or herbal. If the weather is warmer, then iced tea can be a refreshing tipple. 

Rules do not apply when it comes to food, but the standard afternoon tea comprises of finger sandwiches, cakes and scones. If you are wanting to jazz it up, then add some pastries or petit fours. Learn to bake scones like a superstar and host a classy high tea in style.
