The main hero was going to be scones, but I was totally taken by the cucumber sandwiches. I don't particularly like cucumber sandwiches, and at first, I was hom hum about them. But by the second bite, I was hooked. The pickled cucumber with dill was sandwiched between buttered and cream cheesed white bread. It was such an amazing combination that I ate quite a few, despite having to attend a birthday party that night. The beautiful biscuit roses de reims were a great addition to Sarah's concotion of Champagne and Green Tea.
The scones she made from Belind Jeffrey's Mix and Bake turned out looking like what I managed to make when I used that recipe. It tasted fantastic but failed to rise as high as you would want from a scones. We had them with strawberry jam and cream, but I also suggested doing a fancy restaurant type plate up. It actually looked quite good and not too out of place in a semi-high class restuarant.
Ling also brought some fluffy Rhubarb and Blueberry Souffles with a nut struesel.
It was an excellent tea party and thanks to Sarah and Sandra for hosting it.
EDIT: Agnes has pointed out the Freudian (?) slip in the title. It's so funny and I'm that childish I'm going to leave it.
