Ideas for National Tea Day 2021

We’ve put together some sweet ideas for National Tea Day

Next week marks National Tea Day on the 21st April 2021. Tea is arguably the nations favourite hot beverage, when other countries think of the UK, they automatically think tea. So, it’s only right that we celebrate National Tea Day by having a cup of our favourite tea. Nothing goes better with it than a delicious slice of cake. Whether you want to celebrate at home with your family, or send something to your family or friends, we have something that we’re sure will go perfectly with a cup of tea as a special treat.

Whole Cakes

We have a wonderful range of delicious cakes, perfect for sharing with your family or sending to your loved ones. We think all of our flavour options go well with a cuppa, here are a few of our favourites:

Lemon & Elderflower Cake – New for Spring - This cake is full of the flavours of Spring. Full of zesty lemons and fragrant elderflower it's a lovely and light cake perfect for garden gatherings, BBQs, and picnics! Delightfully pairs with a lovely cup of tea, perhaps earl grey to match with the citrus undertones.

Apple Crumble Cake – Real apple pieces, juicy sultanas, cinnamon, and free range eggs make a wonderfully light and tasty sponge. Real butter and natural vanilla flavouring create a luscious buttercream with crumble on top.

Red Velvet cake – A red-velvet cake with deep-red sponge with chocolate notes and vanilla butter icing. Free range eggs, cocoa, and beetroot powder and natural yoghurt create a striking deep red sponge. British butter and natural vanilla flavouring create a velvety buttercream. It is finished with a pretty red crumb on the top.

Biscoff Cake – This Belgian-style biscoff cake is full of sugar and spice and all things nice! A comforting and warming sponge with a deep caramel flavour and hints of cinnamon and other spices. The sponge is held together with a thick layer of buttercream which is infused with biscoff - a caramelised biscuit spread. More of the biscoff buttercream is spread over the top and then covered with a generous biscoff crumb.

Victoria Sponge Cake – Free range eggs, flour, and natural vanilla flavouring creates our award-winning light and fluffy Victoria Sponge. The buttercream is made from English butter and natural vanilla flavouring which is complemented perfectly with quality raspberry jam.

These are just a few of the cake flavours that are available, we have plenty of others including gluten free cakes, dairy free cakes and vegan cakes, so there is something for everyone to enjoy.
