Tea and Cake

Tea And Cake - Emma Block

Anyone who knows me or frequently reads my blog will know that a book entitled 'Tea and Cake' filled with drawings is basically a book that is right up my street. I was sent a copy of the beautiful Tea and Cake by Hardie Grant Books last week. The colour of the book initially made me very happy, I love that pastel mint shade... so very Marie Antoinette, parisian-esque. It is illustrated by Emma Blockwho I've been following on twitter and been a fan of her work for a while now. I've pawed over the pages of this book many times in awe of all the gorgeous illustrations and recipes, obviously with a good cup of tea... it would be rude not too. The photographs above are just a small selection of my favourite sweet treats on offer but there are also savoury delights to indulge in. I can't wait to try out some of the recipes for myself, being a fan of baking myself, especially in the Autumn Winter months. I will definitely be sharing any that I do make. You can buy your copy of the book from Amazon if you're similar to me and I know theres a lot of you who love tea, cake, pretty drawing, then this will make an ideal present this Christmas!
