Ghoulish glow in the dark cupcakes by foodsnots.com
If you’re planning a party for Halloween, some of the most fun you can have is spent baking ghoulishly good cupcakes. Everyone loves a cupcake and they are a perfect recipe idea for Halloween get-togethers; whether you’re baking for a kids’ party or a booze-filled bash.
Take a look at some of the Halloween cupcake (and cookie) ideas I’ve found on good old Pinterest – some might look scary, but I bet they’re devilishly delicious.
Gorgeous. That’s the first word I thought of when I laid my eyes upon this blue chintz tea set from Whittards. Unfortunately the teacups and saucers are sold out but there are still tea plates, tea tidies, mugs and teapots – a bit pricey at £32 – up for grabs. I can imagine laying out a decadent afternoon tea with this set. (Just look at the colour contrast with those yummy-looking scones!) Or even just pretending to be posh lifting my pinky during a quick afternoon cuppa. This traditional style set with a classic design is timeless.

What better way to show your patriotism in the kitchen this year than these lovely floral Britannia oven gloves from Lakeland? Use these to serve up afternoon tea cakes for Wimbledon, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the Olympics… (the list goes on!)

This is a first for me. It is not a university project, nor is it a personal portfolio designed to get me a job in journalism, it is a site devoted to two of the biggest loves in my life.
Tea and cake.
These two simple things are loved the world over and bring comfort, joy and provide stress relief – I’m thinking of the English ‘drink tea in times of stress’ stereotype here – to many. So I decided to start this blog which I will update at a pace that is dictated by no deadlines, no job-seeking pressures, no ‘try to impress employers online’ etc. I think you get the jist.
All that’s left to say is if you like tea and if you like cake, you should like Tea and Cake.
