In the month of September we have booked several afternoon teas at the plantation. As we start preparing for them, one of the items I need is some really great petite pastries. Now I could make these, but being an Innkeeper of a large mansion doesn’t always work with baking. So I have been on the lookout for just the right person to take my place.
Yesterday we had a visit with Mimi’s Sugar and Spicy. Mimi’s family is from England, so you know we were going to get some authentic English pastries. And she didn’t disappoint us!
Take a look at just a few of the ones we will be serving with our Afternoon Tea!
What Afternoon Tea would be complete without some English Tea Cakes?
These yummy bits are Shortbread with Pecan tops.
I am a sucker for Almonds so these Almond Mandolins were right up my alley!
And what was so great about these is they have a hint of lemon and orange flavor to them.
Now this dessert won’t make our list for the Afternoon Tea,
but it could be on our Thanksgiving and Fall Holiday Menu!
This is a Pumpkin Neapolitan with Almonds.
Now these have to be my favorites!
These are Praline Squares with a Graham Cracker Crust AND Almond Paste base!
The only thing missing on this was a little dip in Chocolate!
These have to be the prettiest of the pastries!
This is a Petit Four made of Sponge Cake and Frosting.
Who wouldn’t love this moist and delicious cake!
