Afternoon Tea at Cammerlaws Farm, Scottish Borders

Well, after much deliberation, mum and I decided to host our first "pop-up" afternoon tea at Cammerlaws Farm today. We'd been chatting about it for ages as I kept telling mum about all these amazing afternoon teas I had visited. I'd done some research and couldn't see anyone else doing similar in the Scottish Borders, so we decided to give it a go!  I was lucky enough to have met the lovely Alison from the Edinburgh Cake Ladies  a few times and when I floated the idea on Twitter, Alison kindly offered to meet us for a wee chat.  She gave us some great advice, do's and don'ts and off we went.  Our first dabble into the world of pop-up afternoon teas was in the safe hands of the Edinburgh Cake Ladies.  Who better to try a cakey venture out on, right?!

This is the menu we decided on:
