Strawberries and Cream

Its a lovely day for strawberries and cream! 

What better way to show off my latest cake stand. 

I've used contemporary china from Homebase.

I put a bowl on top - just right for strawberries!

Some little madeira cake shapes with cream and strawberries.

I suppose these could be described as Eton - without the mess!  Just meringue bases with cream and a strawberry on top and a little grated chocolate.

Now I'm going to sit back and enjoy a cuppa and one of these little goodies, and indulge in my two favourite magazines - Mollies Makes and Homes and Antiques.

Hope you had a lovely day.

Love, Liz

Great idea to incorporate a bowl - I love it. My kitchen is actually really modern (as it came) so that would go perfectly. Those are two of my favourite mags as well, although I've not tracked down this issue of MM yet I do have H&A waiting for me.

What a wonderful idea to put a bowl on top Liz. Genius. I am yet to make the cake stand I mentioned to you (seems like a-g-e-s ago) You've re-inspired me. Thanks. x
