Tom’s Cake Company

If you’re hankering after a good old-fashioned afternoon tea (think luscious cakes, cream and sandwiches)  look no further than Tom’s Cake Company.

A wedding cake designer whose business has been knocked for six by the Coronavirus crisis, Tom is offering Afternoon Tea deliveries to Chiswick and west London, at weekends only.  He gives a proportion of his income from the teas to charity every week.

Traditional afternoon tea for your requested number of people will be put together in a box, which you can collect from W4 1AG or it can be delivered within these postcodes: W3, W4, W5, W6, W12, SW13, SW14, TW8 and TW9, on Saturday or Sunday.

“Please be aware we may sell out, if we aren’t able to accept your order we will let you know as soon as possible” he says.

Note: if the website says they aren’t accepting orders at the moment, that’s probably because they’ve sold out for the coming weekend. They usually put the order form online on Mondays, so best to look then!

What’s included:

Six finger sandwiches with a range of fillings: roast chicken salad, ham and mustard, cheese and homemade tomato chutney, goat’s cheese, pear and walnut, egg and cress; made with a range of homemade breads including cumin bread, white sourdough.
One plain scone and one fruit scone (homemade) per person, clotted cream, jam.
One slice of homemade cake and two sweet treats per person. These will vary and may include: Victoria sandwich, mini carrot cakes, chocolate cake, brownies, fruit tarts, other cakes.
Tea as loose leaf or tea bag, per person, according to your choice.

No crockery, plates, cutlery etc are included. No hot water or milk for tea are included, if you’re planning a picnic you will need a flask of hot water for your tea!

Depending on the number of people the tea is ordered for, everything will either be in one box, or all the cakes, scones, jam and tea in one box, and the sandwiches in a separate box. It’s very easily portable to take on a picnic.

The cost:

£15 per person
