A girlie afternoon tea with nutella cheesecake and lots of other naughty treats

This blog has been rather lacking in posts about cake recently, so to remedy that, here are a few snaps from a little afternoon tea party I threw for my girls at the weekend.


We had lots of scrummy cake, mini sandwiches, crisps and sweeties washed down with fruity prosecco and lots of cups of tea.  

This was my first time making whoopie pies - I think I made a few mistakes and they didn't turn out very neat, but I'll know what to do differently next time.  I'll definitely have another go soon and then post the recipe and a step by step because they tasted amazing.  

I made some fairly standard cupcakes and cake pops, although I tried a new frosting for my chocolate cupcakes which was peanut butter!  To make this I whipped together peanut butter, butter, icing sugar and double cream - naughty but oh so nice.  

The main event was my Nutella cheesecake which was an adaptation of a Nigella recipe.  I took step by step photos as I made this and will blog the full how-to soon - if you like nutella you'll love this cheesecake. If I hadn't made it myself I'd feel comfortable saying it's the best cheesecake I've ever tasted :)
