Lazy Girl's Guide to Afternoon Tea

It's nice to have the girls round for afternoon tea or even a family get together, good for a sunday catch up. But not everyone has the time to bake a cake or maybe we would much rather just sit and watch netflix. This is a lazy girl's guide to having afternoon tea. 

This is perfect if you are on a budget, I went down to my local Co-operative shop and had a little look at what they had. I picked up some ready made cake mix which was only 99p. I then picked up some ready made Betty Crocker chocolate fudge icing and edible wafer flowers.

With the cake mix you just need to add 2 eggs and 8 tablespoons of milk. I jazzed mine up a bit and added some cinnamon, chocolate powder and raisins. Pop it in the oven on gas mark 3 for 15 minutes (Mine did need a bit more, I left them in for about 5 minutes extra). 

Let if cool and spread the chocolate fudge icing over the loaf cake and then pop the flowers where ever you want.

From the co-operative shop I also picked up a ready made berry medley for £2 to add on the side to go along with the cake.

What cakes do you like to make? Let me know in the comments below.



  1. Wow, the cake looks delicious.

  2. Brownies are my fav! but I honestly have never attempted to make them myself

  3. I love making cupcakes if I have some spare time <3

  4. Great idea! I like to make little tarts. I buy some pre-made pie dough. I take the dough and put it in the spots in a mini-muffin tin. Then I just use a spoon and put a dallop of any flavored jelly or lemon curd in the tin. I then just put it in the toaster oven until the crust is cooked (like ten minutes) and it makes a perfect tea treat!
