Last Sunday, we ended the outside teatime season with a bang. I did some seasonal baking and an irresistible autumn decoration. One of our favorite cakes was the choc & caramel cheesecake with chocolate sauce on top! I also offered a warming autumn fruit crumbler with an almond cookie topping, yummieh!, and a delicious ginger cake with fudgy frosting – it really was the perfect september outside retreat!
Luckily I had a visit from my dear friend Rosey Sugar from Japan. She helped me with everything. If you have don´t know her and have not seen her cookie decorations. Please go to her website right now. She is an artist.
This is the season of harvest and gorgeous shades of brown, rust, copper and green. I tried to brighten up the tables with some seasonal finds. You can easily transform an teatime table into “woodland wonderful” with all those coloured leafs, lampion flowers, rose hips, wooden candle holders, pumpkins and so on.
All the vintage plates and cutlery just made tea-time truly glorious and the granny extra proud! Great to look at was the pretty table runner, the cheeky knitted tea cosy and the tiered cake stands. It was a beautiful sunday with lovely people around – a feast for the senses.
