Our Glorious Food

"What a glorious afternoon for a tea party! The courgette cake was heavenly, chocolate Guinness cake to die for too!
Hope to see you again at another event soon!" York Open Studios

Glorious Tea Parties is passionate about creating beautiful hand crafted cakes that can be enjoyed and shared with friends over a glorious cup of tea.

All the cakes are baked in my own kitchen and we use only the finest ingredients, locally sourced wherever possible, and those that display the Fair Trade kitemark.

The recipes come from endlessly reading through cookery books, looking for something that little bit more alternative.

Whilst we specialise in cakes we can also supply a range of savouries: why not try our mezzes, with hummus, tzatziki, pretzels, olives and a fresh peppery rocket salad.

We will also supply a full range of beverages, including alcohol where required.
