The new crepe maker is AMAZING. Perfectly even heat. Heaven. Come see me tomorrow @hortonfarmersmarket. The Welsh Baker has a special celebration planned next week so there are feature cakes to commemorate the event. #welshcakes
It’s #afternoonteaweek and we couldn’t let the week pass without indulging ourselves. 🍰 We have a Duchess to thank for this delicious tradition. Anna Russell, 7th Duchess of Bedford, would tend to get a little #hangry in the middle of the day and started to request sandwiches, cake and, of course, a pot of tea.
She was a lady-in-waiting and a companion of Queen Victoria 👸🏻 and introduced her to the ritual.
Luckily for us she indulged and so can we! Welsh cakes from Popty Rhydwen Bakery in Llandissilio, with homemade sandwiches, cake and chocolate bites all complimented by our Bright Afternoon tea, with its slightly smoky and floral notes.
