a chocolate tea party

To celebrate chocolate week, we had a Chocolate Tea Party today to raise money for the Sick Children’s Trust. We had a bake-off and rated the cakes to win a chocolate pizza. John was the outstanding winner with his chocolate fudge cake with a delicious icing (he wouldn’t tell us his secret!). Following a close second was Sophie’s husband Simon, who baked a delicious orange chocolate cake, with a secret ingredient which he did share – it was chilli, and it added a lovely warmth! We also ran a chocolate raffle with prizes donated from The Chocolate Pizza Company, Cocoa Love Chocolate and The Great Little Hamper Company. So we are all rolling ourselves home, full of tea and cake, and raised lots of money for the charity.
