My husband and myself took his parents for afternoon tea (with sparkling wine) just as a bit of a treat and a change. We were on Groupon/Wowcher type voucher deal which is just a as well as I would have been very disappointed if we'd paid full price. The sandwiches were fine, the usual fair of ham, tuna etc and there was enough of them as the in-laws don't have a big appetite. However the cakes were a different story the scones had been slightly heated up and in this case it was because they weren't very fresh in fact they were quite dry inside and although there was plenty of butter and jam for them there wasn't nearly enough cream for the four of us. As I understand it cup cakes are light and fluffy, apparently not, these were quite heavy and stodgy, edible but not what you would expect for a cup cake. There was also a piece of fruit cake which was, in fact, very nice.
All in all not a complete disaster but lots of room for improvement, in fact if they buy their cakes from an outside supplier I can recommend a much better one than they are currently using!
