Afternoon Tea Week 2022
Celebrate Afternoon Tea week from the 8th to 14th August 2022
A lot of us think of Afternoon teas as special treats, and they can be just that. But in reality, afternoon teas are just finger sandwiches, little cakes, and scones, with a pot of tea or coffee (or prosecco if you want it sparkling). In the grand scheme of things, afternoon teas are something you can quite easily recreate at home, and with the amount of spare cash we have dwindling with increased prices, luxury outings might be a bit out of reach for some.
Although we love an afternoon tea, it may seem like a bit too much of a luxury at the moment. But as Afternoon Tea Week is from the 8th to 14th of August 2022, we want to encourage you to still enjoy an afternoon tea... by making your own at home. Let’s face it, most of us can make finger sandwiches, the fillings are usually anything to extravagant that we can do them ourselves. Cakes can be a little tricker though, not everyone is a baker and that’s okay, you don’t need to be one to create an affordable afternoon tea for the whole family.
At Sponge, we have little cakes brownies that are the perfect sizes for afternoon teas, and they are delivered straight to the door anywhere in the UK, so you don’t have to worry about going out and getting cakes when they can come to you. All you need to do is sort the sandwiches and the scones, simple. Here is some more information about our mini cakes and two-bite brownies:
