To raise money for our Heritage Village we hope to start providing real oldfashioned afternoon tea - using real teas, old fashioned plates etc.

Just got back into baking rock cakes.real old fashioned things but so tasty, and make a refreshing change from scones. Perhaps these would be something you could try!

Small dainty club sandwiches, sticky ginger cake, scones with cream and jam.
Have a look at Alexa Johnson's fantastic book, 'Ladies a Plate' full of old fashioned kiwi recipes for inspiration.

Sponge cakes real cream and jam in the middle and a dusting of icing sugar on the top!

About the old fashioned plates. One of the cafes here uses a mixture of old bone china. Looks absolutely charming and that none of the trios match each other just adds to the charm.
Sounds like a great idea for a fundraiser. Good luck.

My teenage son wanted me to make him an old fashioned victoria sponge cake with jam and cream recently when he had some friends over - so I made him one and it went down a treat.

Thanks so much for all the wonderful ideas. Terachaos have you a good rock cake recipe. When I try them they are always dry.

I recommend that you use baking soda and cream of tartar with plain flour as your raising agent when you bake things for this old fashioned afternoon tea.
