March was a very special month for Cake Stand Heaven when our vintage china cake stands were used by the contestants on Masterchef.
Cake Stand Heaven on Masterchef 2012
Celebrity 'Comedy Legends' of the 1970's were treated to a traditional afternoon tea party in The Parlour at Sketch Restaurant. Our cake stands were loaded with sweet and savory delights, created by the final four amateur cooks, and served to Bill Oddie, Wendy Craig and Tim Brooke-Taylor amongst others . I wonder if they noticed the china under all those cakes?

We would love to hear from anyone visiting the Manx National Heritage Museum who might take a cup of tea and a slice of cake served on a selection of our vintage china. Send us your stories and we will send you a Minton 'Hardwick' 11cm open butter dish.

This month sees the launch of our Shabby Chic Boutique.

Here you will find pre-loved vintage china in the shabby chic style at very affordable prices. Usually there is wear to the gold gilding or a minor manufacturing flaw - don't forget a lot of vintage china was made before modern quality control and tiny blemishes were routinely over-looked.This doesn't mean that there will be any chips, cracks or crazing in our shabby chic china - we consign those pieces to the rubbish bin.

Shabby Chic China

We will be adding to this category over the coming weeks so check back soon to pick up a bargain.

Coming Soon......

We are currently searching for a supplier of good quality traditional Tea Room cake stands - the plates sit on stacked supports so there is no centre fitting. These are great for sandwich cakes and gateaux. We are also increasing our stock of vintage wooden Tea Room cake stands before launching this category.

We have had many requests for glass comport cake stands with a dome cover and again we are checking out suppliers.

~~~~~~~~

We will be launching our next competition in April so please visit our website. Win a Diamond Jubilee special blend of tea in a commemorative tea caddy from Fortnum and Mason.

 
Fortnum and Mason's Jubilee Tea Caddy

"Blending teas from India, Ceylon and China, this noble tea offers mellow sweetness and golden brightness and is truly fit for a queen. Presented in our decorative Jubilee caddy, which is decorated with our specially commissioned Jubilee design, it will make a lasting memory of this happy and historic occasion".
