St. Nicholas Tea Inspired by Tasha Tudor!

December Teas Are So Cheerful and Festive!
When lit, the Advent wreath creates such lovely shadows and light on the ceiling.
The Dundee cake is brought out to be served with tea.

With the coming of Christmas, Dundee cakes are delicious at teas throughout December!

The Corgyncombe Bakery makes many Dundee cakes in all different shapes and sizes.
The receipt for Dundee Cake is in "The Tasha Tudor Cookbook".
Diane never adds the citron nor the raisins as called for in the receipt, but adds more than the called for amount of currants and in addition to the almonds in the receipt, adds walnuts.
This combination makes the most delicious Dundee cake!

Dundee cakes are festive at St. Nicholas Tea on December 6th!
The design on the cup has St. Nicholas pulling a gift laden sled, with a tree over his shoulder, and a doll in a sack at his waist, whilst adoring children look on.
Inside the cup is fresh milk from Corgyncombe Dairy Goat Carmella Lucille!
