Eeks, that's so adorable! Could you list what some of the foods are or share recipes? What's the white stuff in the cups - clotted cream? Heart marshmallows!! Were those hard to make? Beautiful pictures.

Ahh, I must confess  I forgot about the heart marshmallows being in the picture- those were a gift from a friend, but there are an awful lot of tutorials out there on marshmallows, and for hearts you just cut them with heart cookie cutters! Here's one on my favorite blog: http://cafejohnsonia.blogspot.com/2008/04/tuesdays-with-dorie-homemade.html

Other recipes are:
(vegan) Cinnamon rolls- http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2007/12/27/seasons-eatings/
(vegan) Chocolate cupcakes- http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2006/02/14/classic-chocolate-cupcakes/
I attempted this recipe for Macarons- http://www.foodbeam.com/2006/06/28/la-vie-en-rose-macarons-a-la-rose-de-pierre-herme/ but it didn't work out. You can see how I attempted to salvage it  on my blog.
Poppy Seed cake- http://www.dinnerwithkirsten.com/2009/01/11/poppy-seed-cake-with-chocolate-ganache-frosting/
And I used a packet  mix for the scones, to make veganizing them easier (I had one vegan guest)

The white stuff in cups is vegan whipping cream, the white stuff in a bowl (if you can see it...) is clotted cream.

I'm afraid I'm one in a million when it comes to tea parties, but it all depends which area you're moving to? In some places there are feminist groups who meet together and eat tea and cake, in others knitting groups do it... I live in a small ish town but in cities you're more likely to find fun. There are certainly lots of tearooms about anyway!

And yay for dragees!

lovely:) do like a nice bit of tea and cake. In the UK it isn't an everyday thing - but sometimes we like to have a special treat and yes there are tea rooms in most towns - and especially at seaside places - Dorset or Devon cream teas are the best Smiley (although Cornish ones have the best cream). My boys have competitions to see how much cream and jam the can balance on a scone half before it falls off. Our scones are more like cakes here - you rub butter and flour together then bind into a soft dough with milk and egg before rolling out and cutting into rounds and baking..
I'm all hungry now!
