Our ‘Childhood Memories’ menu…
The table awaiting it’s guests…
The newly refurbed main hall at St Pauls…
Our homemade black pudding scotch eggs…
We held our 4th Plate Lickers Supper Club on Friday night. Due to the popularity of the last event and the fact that we had so much fun with the menu we decided to go with the ‘Childhood Memories’ theme again.
Thanks to all of our lovely guests who really got into the spirit of the supper club, made new friends and even humoured us enough to queue for their dinner, school dinner style :). Thanks also got to John Quysner (Centre at St Paul’s) and Jack (Jack’s Gelato) for his wonderful elderflower sorbet!

Me and Miss Igs are joining forces at this year’s Mill Road Winter Fair with an Afternoon Tease, Miss Igs and Plate Lickers triple whammy, come and say hi on Saturday 1st December.
I thought it was high time for another charity shop treasures update! Check out these little beauties, which I have acquired over the past few months…
Just over a week ago I was invited to the opening party of ‘Hunt & Darton Cafe’ a pop-up cafe and live installation performance art project. It’s one of eight commissions thought up by members of Live Art Collective East, taking advantage of unusual spaces and places in East Anglia as part of the Cultural Olympiad. I didn’t know what to expect but was very tickled by the whole project…Hunt & Darton are extremely funny ladies. I took a few photo’s of the things that had me chuckling…
It’s a fully functioning cafe with a witty, tongue in cheek twist, definitely worth a visit.
Over the past few weeks I’ve been drip feeding my pretty treasures out onto Twitter. But thought it was about time that I put them all up together in a gallery of mismatching gorgeousness!
It’s my Birthday! My blog Birthday that is! The Afternoon Tease is 2!
2 years ago today, I tentatively posted my first photo of the towering cupcake creation that I made for my friends wedding and had a little bitch about Sophie Dahl (I still stand by my opinion that she’s sickeningly perfect! ;). When I started out on my blogging adventure I would never have imagined that 172 posts later I’d still be going strong, baking like a demon and blethering on about it with a passion!
I still get quite scared when I think about people reading what I write, which is silly really as I post it on the world wide web for all to see. I’m not a natural writer, I’m just dedicated to cake and to sharing the love! Thank you to all who have visited, read my inane cake related ramblings and tried out the recipes that I’ve shared!
I’m always pondering my next baking adventure so have no fear…I don’t think I’ll ever run out of something to write about…
Watch this space…
This time last year I made a tealoaf using my homemade Seville orange marmalade and blogged it here. I wasn’t as happy as I could have been with it as I overcooked it slightly. Being a creature of habit, and because it it officially National Marmalade Week, I thought I’d repeat the process and give it a go with years batch of marmalade and these are the pics…isn’t it pretty!?
