    KAVEY! That’s such a mean question. Hmm well, I do love a good carrot cake – with plenty of walnuts

  2. Anne

    You’re expecting me to say a cupcake innit but I won’t as I’m contrary! I’m going with a freshly made scone with jam and lashings of clotted cream!

  3. Katie @ Cake Vs Scales

    This tricky…I can’t choose one!
    I’m going with –
    *Brownie (A good homemade brownie – None of this supermarket rubbish)
    *Fresh fruit scone with jam + cream
    *Teacake (Recent discovery, amazing!)

  4. Laura Connor

    Got to be a Betty’s fat rascal all warm and buttery ; )

  5. Margaret

    I would go for warm home baked scones with strawberry jam and lashings of clotted cream

  6. Deb giannasi

    I’m a little addicted to torte della nona at the moment . Bit tricky to make a good one but staying in custard theme, I love egg custard tarts, mmm

  7. wendy stanger (@kikicomp)

    I love home baked cheese scones fresh from oven so butter all melts in – yummy

  8. Lucy Mayer

    Favourite afternoon treat would have to be a homemade bakewell tart, fresh from the oven. 😀

    …and wow, what a stunning cake!! I’m thinking it would be a completely brilliant idea for my twins’ birthday, since one currently adores everything pink, and the other yellow…. this may be well worth looking into! 🙂

  9. Maya Russell

    My favourite baked afternoon treat has to be fresh scones.

  10. Tracy Nixon

    I love home made cheese scones still warm from the oven and served with a knob of butter!

  11. Tracy Nixon

    I am a fan on Facebook as Tracy K Nixon Thank you for the lovely giveaway!

  12. Sandra Clarke

    It has to be scones, preferably with fresh cream & strawberries.

  13. Jenny W

    What a fab competition! I like an old fashioned treat – a big toasted teacake (or perhaps a hot cross bun), which is stuffed full of juicy sultanas with lots of melting butter! Hmm this is making me peckish!

  14. Karen Whittaker

    FB name is Karen Whittaker and twitter name is @whittaker2611.

    Favourite afternoon treat has to be scones with strawberry jam. It reminds me so much of being a child at my grandparents’ house in the summer holidays and eating them warm from the oven with the homemade jam melting into the butter….how healthy (not!) does that sound!!

  15. Sarah Maclean

    I love a slice of Treacle Tart, with lots of cream

  16. Glynis

    Lovely giveaway.

    My afternoon treat would be carrot cake as long as it has lovely topping and I am also very, very partial to a fresh cheese scone with lashings of butter!

  17. Angela Walton

    Cupcakes, has to be cupcakes. It is an addiction

  18. Jan Takhar

    It’s got to be Betty’s Curd Tart, washed down with a cup of their Tea Room Blend tea!

  19. Choclette

    Now that is a mean question. I love afternoon tea and am happy to eat all sorts, but if you are really pinning me down, you just can’t beat a Cornish cream tea with homemade scones and jam with lashings of clotted cream.

  20. laura jane bland
