Examples Of Best British Bakes

Best accompaniements to tea, are British scones, Scottish Shortbread, Chocolate Digestives, and the ever popular Lemon Drizzle.

But for something a little special, try the lemon cake with poppy seeds and bake in cute little mini bundts. You can even add Victoria Sandwich Cake, Classic Carrot Cake, cupcakes or even mini bundts to your cake stand.
