just looking for some inspiration- I have to take a plate to a baby shower this weekend. It's between 3-5pm, so am looking for afternoon tea type suggestions. Would love to take something quick to make, but that has an elegant wow factor... I can bake and am quite a good cook, but am time poor!

Little baby quiches? Get some frozen puff pastry, cut into strips and drape 2 strips over muffin holes to form a cross (or cut pastry to fit holes, but that takes longer), fill with quiche mixture - egg, cheese, leek and pea? Smoked salmon? Etc.

Or posh little sausage roll things - again with the frozen puff, but make a sausage mixture, like pork and fennel, or chicken and pinenut, and a homemade sauce?

I'm always so grateful when people bring something non-sweet to these things.

Mini Caprese Salads? Tomato slice, round of fresh mozzarella, basil leaf, kalamata olive, secured with a pick and drizzled with olive oil and balsamic?

Or wrapped like this ?

Ooh, that sounds like a fabulous idea. Yum.
