Cake Club does Serendipity...

 Hello lovelies!

This month's installment of Chloe's Cake Club took our slightly smaller than normal gathering to Serendipity, one of my favourite cake places for one of my favourite afternoon teas. Regular readers of Coco will know that I love Serendipity and have gone for afternoon tea there for my last three birthdays! You can read about my most recent afternoon tea visit here

I may be going over old ground, but I love Serendipity so much! It's ran by lovely couple June and Robin who have become very good friends of Mama L and I just from our frequent visits, they're like my extended family and it's definitely a home away from home!  I was so pleased when Chloe suggested we have a Cake Club there! 

There were only four of us at Cake Club this time as many of our lovely ladies had other commitments, but that didn't dampen our spirits! I brought along my lovely VBF Natalie to meet the Cake Club crew and Chloe invited Sarah, a friendly and fabulous food blogger. We were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves which meant we could take lots of lovely photos and have a good old giggle without annoying any unassuming customers with our constant camera clicking (who'd be a blogger?!).

Our table was so pretty and I loved the little tea cosy on my own little pot of decaf tea. Natalie isn't a tea drinker so she opted for Diet Coke and Chloe and Sarah were thrilled at the promise of bottomless tea, an essential requirement for the perfect afternoon tea!

Tier by tier our food was amazing. We started with ham, chicken, egg mayonnaise and tuna sandwiches...and they were super tasty! I haven't been eating bread since joining Slimming World, so I savoured every last morsel I ate!! We followed our sandwiches with a mixture of plain, fruit and cheese and herb scones. They were smaller in size than a standard afternoon tea scone  but we got loads of them which meant I had room for one of each flavour...a genius idea if you ask me! In fact I think I had four of them!!! After a short rest we then moved on to cake, the most amazing chocolate brownies, Macarons (my favourite!) and the cutest pink daisy cupcake you ever did see! Delicious!  I have to point out that I didn't eat all of this in one sitting, but what I left was boxed up and taken home for tea. It was so good!

 The world's cutest pot of jam!

Aside from the wonderful company, one of the highlights of this Cake Club meeting for me was having fun with Natalie's Selfie Stick!  Being a blogger, I'm not sure why I haven't invested in one of these for OOTD shots yet, but after seeing how good they are I think I might have to!  It was hilarious as we all tried to get into shot, but we got some really nice photographs from it and had loads of fun in the process!

 Selfie Stick fun!

We chatted about everything from makeup to how much sugar there is in potatoes and had such a lovely time, but sadly before long it was time to pack up our leftover cakes and go our separate ways.  Thanks to June for having us and being amazing as always and thanks to Chloe for organising; I love Cake Club!

Afternoon tea at Serendipity starts at £15 per person.  To pre-book call (0191) 510 0054 or contact June via the Facebook page here
