JOIN JULIET SEAR AS SHE BAKES UP A STORM THIS
NATIONAL CREAM TEA DAY
Sitting proudly alongside other traditions, National Cream Tea Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the much-treasured British institution of enjoying delicious scones, British jam, and Cornish clotted cream!
And this year is no different, as baking expert and TV chef Juliet Sear will be hosting an exciting online bake-a-long on National Cream Tea Day, making a delicious new scone recipe with a twist for all to try.
The baking expert will be hosting the tutorial on Instagram on Friday 26th June, forming part of the celebrations taking place for the sixth annual National Cream Tea Day.
This delicious day is hosted by Rodda’s Clotted Cream and Wilkin & Sons Tiptree, who in addition to organising a day of online festivities, are calling on the nation to enjoy a cream tea from the comfort of their own home this National Cream Tea Day, whilst raising money for a worthy cause of their choosing.
Taking place on Friday 26th June, the national day normally see’s thousands of people from across the globe coming together through organised events to enjoy a delicious cream tea, whilst raising money for a charity of their choice.
This year, in the absence of the many events that would have taken place this summer, National Cream Tea Day is helping everyone to come together virtually through the power of social media.
By following the day online and joining the conversation on Facebook and Instagram, followers can post their photos of their home-made cream teas with loved ones, helping create the ultimate feel-good online occasion. To make giving to a worthy cause even easier, the society have created a donations page on their website, so participants can select one of charities the organisation has worked with.
