Happy Royal Wedding Weekend! Do you have big plans? Are you turning the tv on at 4 am? Do you not care at all?
I love a royal wedding. They really don’t happen too often so I enjoy the spectacle. I think my girls are just a bit older than I was when Diana married Prince Charles. The thing I remember most is how excited my mom was; I really don’t remember anything about the wedding at all. A is intrigued by the wedding. E can’t wait for the Preakness since she LOVES horses. I’m excited about the wedding! I can’t wait to see her dress (always my favorite part)! I think she is stunning and Prince Harry is devastatingly handsome.
I am posting a bit early this week because I want to give you some extra time to decide what you are going to make for this special occasion. I have already posted three classic British recipes:
Any of these will be a perfect addition to your Royal Wedding celebration.
If you are going for scones with homemade clotted cream, make the clotted cream today or tomorrow. The clotted cream will last in the fridge for several days. Trader Joe’s brand whipping cream works great for this recipe; you can use pasteurized cream but not ultra-pasteurized. If you are making your own jam that will last basically forever so you can knock that out early too.
A Victoria sponge is quite an easy cake to bake. You can keep it stress free by buying your whipped cream and/or jam… or you can make your own. You can’t go wrong; it will be delicious!
Sticky toffee pudding is seriously amazing. I think scones are great for breakfast, brunch, lunch or tea. I think a Victoria sandwich is great for brunch or anything that comes later. I do think of sticky toffee pudding as really more of a true dessert. You can make both components early and put them together right before serving.
Let me know which one you are going to make. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I wish Harry and Meghan all the best of everything!
P.S. If you are looking for a British beverage other than tea try a Pimm’s. That is good for a British wedding and a horse race!
