Bring out the biscuits at our favourite afternoon tea venues

Afternoon tea wouldn't feel right without some utterly fabulous nibbles and biscuits. Take inspiration from London’s Berkeley Hotel and its Pret-A-Portea fashionista tea. You begin with the traditional pot of tea, champagne and cucumber sandwiches, but the real show-stoppers are the fashion-themed cakes and biscuits that follow, all inspired by top designers.

Our favourites were the mini sunshine yellow Luella dress and Chanel 2.55 bag, but the fashionable nibbles change with the seasons - that gives us an excuse to go back regularly then! For a more purse-friendly option, and an excuse to get your cook on, we suggest creating your very own fashionista afternoon tea. Arm yourself with a rolling pin (Sil-Pin do a fabulous range of eye-popping silicone pins) and a piping bag for superior decoration, and you’re good to go. Squire’s Kitchen has a delightful range of cookie cutters in fashionable shapes to offer.  Once baked, you can let your inner fashion designer run wild to produce some sugar sweet creations.
