June Tea Time Treats

Well, we are half way through the year and our Tea Time Treaters have made brilliant bake after brilliant bake. 

From January's Citrus Cakes to February's Perfect Puddings to April's Cupcakes and Fairy Cakes... And what a brilliant selection of biscuits for May's Tea Time Treats! The full round-up can be found here with Karen on Lavender and Lovage.

This month's theme is....

Layer Cakes!

Fear not, we aren't just talking about twenty-plus layer cakey constructions, any number of layers will do. I can promise you now, my entry will be between two to four layers, depending on how much rise I manage to achieve (tune in next weekend to find out in the manner of a soap opera cliff hanger...but with less shouting and more sugar). 

As I'm getting married in a few weeks (just thought to drop that in...) the deadline for this months Tea Time Treats is earlier than usual, the 20th June 2013. Any bakes added after this will be added to a second round-up that Karen will kindly post on 28th June on Lavender and Lovage. 

And lastly....

  1. oooh, I missed this post entirely... i'm having real problems with blogger not posting my posts onto the reader list and I think this may be happening to you... i've just checked on my reader list and it's not showing. I'm not sure how to resolve this as mine seem to just appear again after a while but yours is not there. x

  2. Yum...I love a good layer cake so I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with! Not sure how many layers I'll be able to manage though! I wonder what the world record is, if there's such a thing! :-)

  3. First of all congratulation with your upcoming wedding :-)Perhaps the theme of layer somehow is connected to your wedding cake ? I am uncertain how to calculate the amount of layers ? Well you will have to see, what I making for this tea table of June :-) Kirsten

  4. Oooooooooooh layer cakes - can wait to see what people come up with.

  5. Layer cakes is a fantastic theme and perfect for your wedding month. Do tell more, it sounds very exciting and many congratulations.

  6. Congratulations on your wedding! I love layer cakes and have just submitted my carrot cake. If I have time, I will be making a multi layer cake which I've planned but not found the time yet.

  7. Congratulations on you upcoming wedding. Looking forward to reading more.

    I know you've jsut done a round up of the first lot of Layer cakes, but Ican't seem to link up my recipe for the second round up. So I am posting it here. It is a Rhubarb and Rosehip Jam Cake
