PINK fund raising afternoon tea

PINK afternoon tea table is ready for the guests

MEGA - MEGA MANY THANKs to all of my amazing girls friends, who took part in this pink fund raising afternoon tea for their generosity and positive response to my invitation.

Together we collected 600 DKK, which has been transferred to www.araceagainstbreastcancer.dk, as this charity is accepting any amount of money without demands to specific value.

The afternoon started with a glass of bobbles in form of my interpretation of Kir Royal, mixing sparkling wine with blackcurrant rum.

As small appetisers I used mini toast bread. One option being the traditional egg salad and the second option having a more French character of French soft goat cheese and French lavender jam (Fleurs de Lavande).

Next point on the afternoon tea agenda was apple-walnut scones served together with whipped dairy whipping cream and blackberry jam with lemon and balcamico. These scones could have needed some more butter, as they were a bit to the dry side.

The cake part of the menu consisted of three different cakes.

The first cake being raspberry cake using the bottom part of the strawberry cake version 3.0, a too, too thin vanilla cake cream found in the bread book "Hjemmebagt" and freshly picked Autumn raspberries from the garden of my very good friends in Horsens.

The second cake being a "mini" cheese cake with liquorice and lemon overloaded with enormous amount of calories.

The third cake being Madeleines
As a finishing touch I served a fruit selection, where I forgot to take a picture.

Everyone was filled up more than 100% in the stomach after the afternoon tea, I had to skip the evening meal !!!!

Thank you for your support for PINK afternoon tea
