Afternoon Tea at Betty’s

I don’t travel ‘up North’ as often as I should do, but when I next make the road trip, I have one more thing to add to my To-Do list; Afternoon Tea at Betty’s. Last weekend, the lovely folk from the Yorkshire based Tea Rooms packed up their crockery and set up shop in North London. What resulted was the most instagrammable, flat-layable blogger event that you ever did see.

The event began with a brief history of Betty’s, before we watched one of the expert cake-icers (I mean, imagine that being your job!) show us the nifty tips and tricks used to create their delectable creations. Soon though, it was our turn, and in true GBBO style we had just 25 minutes to ice our very own cakes ready for them to be judged! What resulted was a selection of incredibly iced cakes that would possibly have bought a smile to even Paul Hollywood’s face.

Next up, we were challenged to create the most instagram-worthy table set up, choosing from delicate pastel coloured crockery which the team had bought down from their Yorkshire tea rooms.
