FOOD | Vintage Cupcake Kitchen - Festive Afternoon Tea

Sunday, December 17, 2017

Afternoon tea is one of lifes little pleasures and a festive afternoon tea came at the right time. I have been acting like the Grinch. Some forced festivities at work had me grumpy and grouchy and not my festive self. 

I love Christmas and Secret Santa is one of my favourite things. We planned a girlie day with plans for mulled wine at the Chrismas Markets stalls in a bar near the cafe. Sadly the snow consired against us and the Markets were cancelled but we still got to have mulled wine and a festive cocktail. 

Vintage Cupcake Kitchen or VCK as it's known is a lovely little tea shop. They do a wide variety of cakes and afternoon tea. I've been a couple of times before and the regular afternoon tea was lovely. 

In the end only three of us could make it and luckily the snow wasn't as bad as the forcast had predicted so we made our way in to Saddleworth. 

The festive afternoon tea was £20 each with a £10 per person deposit to be paid at the time of booking. Included in the price was a sparkly glass of Prossecco and it really was sparkly as well as sparkling.

You've heard of my glitter hatered when it comes to Lush but in wine I'm all for it and on cakes and sadwiches and life! It's Christmas!!! See I'm cheerful and life glitter but keep it off my bath bombs!

This might have been one of the best value afternoon teas I've ever had. There was a huge amount of food and the portion sizes were on the large side. I'm greedy and I've never had to ask for a take home box before but I did this time.

There was a really good mix of savoury and sweet items and there was a little suprise of chocolate coins, chocolate santa and snowmen under the crackers.

Mini Macaroon, Mini Mince pie, start shaped ginger biscuits, millionaires shortbread and mini ferro roche cupcakes. Not forgetting scones with cream, jam and fresh raspberries.

Waffle with bacon, Brie and cranberry rustic roll, Turkey and stuffing on granary bloomer and a bucket of soup.

As well as the prossecco the first hot drink is also included. I decided to go for tea which another friend went for and we got a huge pot which was made with real tealeaves which I love but never use at home.

It fely magical watching the snow fall which you can't really see in the picture. It made me feel in the mood for Christmas.

What have you been doing to get in the festive spirit?
