Royal Wedding Tea

Royal Wedding Tea

I was just a little girl, but I remember watching Princess Di’s fairy tale wedding on TV with my mom and sisters.  We weren’t up at 4AM to watch the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate; but my girls and I and a dear friend did don big hats and pearls and watched internet clips last night.  Then we sat down to a tea party (for dinner!)  The food wasn’t 100% British.  But it was absolutely delicious.  Here’s what we snacked on:

Radish and thick butter teas sandwiches with Union Jack toothpick flags

Pimento Cheese on white bread sandwiches

Crumpetts with Lemon Curd

Napa Cabbage and fennel salad with lemon vinaigrette

Prince Williams Imposter Biscuit Cake (we didn’t have time to make the cake, so spread tea biscuits with Nutella)

Strawberries and brown sugar

Ginger tea

A sunset orange drink of Tanqueray’s London Dry Gin with a splash of fresh orange juice and a drop of Angostura bitters…we dubbed Royal Cocktail

One final note, the crumpets were amazing; even though we accidentally added the baking soda with all the other dry ingredients – instead later with the milk.  Any Brit would’ve recognized them as a homemade crumpets:  Golden and chewy on one side and spongy and blond on the other side with holes (similar to English muffins) throughout.  Warm and spread with butter, they were royally delicious.
