The super sandwich selection
Forget plain old egg and cress or cheese and pickle sandwiches; B Bakery’s sophisticated little sandwiches are a delight for children and grown-ups alike! B Bakery's minty cucumber and cream cheese filling is piled high on red beetroot bread that’ll have kids fascinated. If red sandwiches aren’t enough to get them excited, they won't be able to turn down the ham and cheese sandwich with wholegrain mustard mayo – yum!
The simply splendid savoury bites
Sandwiches are to be expected on an afternoon tea, but B Bakery takes the savoury offerings up a notch with other tiny tasty treats. Kids will go crazy for the savoury muffins, packed with spinach, feta and sun-dried tomatoes. There’s also a smoked salmon pretzel with cream cheese, chives and cucumber, and a dainty but perfectly delicious pastrami burger with tomato, salad and mustard mayonnaise – perfect for tiny tummies!
The magnificent mini sweet treats
Mini chocolate cupcakes – need we say any more? Chocoholic children (and grown-ups!) will delight in tucking into these rich, creamy and totally tasty chocolate cakes. Meanwhile, biscuit tin raiders will be in their element with the queen sablé and sweet cream cheese mousse.
The perfect pastry selection
If baking is a science, patisserie is an art – especially on a scale as sweet and small as this! The sight of B Bakery’s pastry selection is enough to whet even the fussiest of eater’s appetites. The mini lemon meringue pie is the perfect size for small mouths (and tummies), and the vanilla and raspberry jam choux is like a doughnut that’s had a swanky upgrade – delicious!
The piece de resistance – scones!
An afternoon tea wouldn’t be complete without scones, glorious scones. Hot and fresh from the kitchen, B Bakery’s plain scones are served with clotted cream and jam. The only arguments at the table will be about which goes on first. Cornish rules, or Devon rules?
