Book-inspired Tea Parties

The Guardian recently asked: what are the best cakes based on children’s books?

We love reading so were really pleased to  provide a book-inspired pop-up tearoom for Ossett’s “Festival in a Day”, as  part of Wakefield’s Literature Festival. Many of our menu items came from much-loved children’s books, such as Mrs Rabbit’s Blackberry Buns and Chamomile Tea (from Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit). We love books, tea and cakes, so this was a great opportunity to put the two together.

We could do a book-inspired tea room for any book lovers, young and old. This would be ideal for a birthday party, for instance . We know many children (and grown-ups!) who would love Mad Hatter cupcakes or Harry Potter’s favourite, Treacle Tart.
