Scrummy scones with lashings of cream, melt-in-the-mouth bakes with sweet icing and a well deserved cup of beautiful brew – you can't go wrong with an elegant afternoon of tea and cakes for Mother's Day. No afternoon tea is complete without some of the nation's favourite bakes - yes, we're talking about rich chocolate cake, Victoria sponge, lemon drizzle and carrot cake. With easy recipes for all the classics, not forgetting the warm scones, it's time to pop the kettle on and get baking.
High time for tea
The centerpiece for any afternoon tea is the tea itself. Black, herbal, fruity or refreshing, whatever your favourite, these blends offer something for any tea lover.
