Impressive but surprisingly easy dishes to make
I am organising a cream tea afternoon, and am a little stuck on quantities.How many scones each - one? Two?How much clotted cream per scone? Will a 225g (8oz) tub do 8-10 people, or is that stingy?Would love your opinins, please!
I'd do 1.5 each - there will be some people who'd like another. And get two tubs of clotted cream - 225g for 10 is not enough.
If there is cake/sandwiches as well, then one, if the only thing, then 2.I think that you need an ounce of cream per scone - nothing worse than stingy amounts of cream.You might want to provide whipped (real not aerosol) cream too - some people prefer it
Thanks for you help. It's actually a work Open Day (I work for a charity), and we have about 70 people coming. Which is more than I originally planned for, and now I'm getting a bit stressed about it!I agree re: not being stingy with cream...and if I buy too much, I can always use it myself...
