Let them eat Cake stands were out and about and very busy last weekend. First stop was Paradise Gardens where the East End WI piled them high with the yummiest cakes and prettiest flowers imaginable.
Only at Paradise Gardens would you find this robotic pink creature parading the park dealing with your empties by shouting 'recycling is fun' - while striking the fear of the god into small children.
Final picture shows our chief and 1st mate plate drillers (Clare's dad and hubby) returning from a hair-raising trip on the Carters Steam Fair "Victory Dive Bomber". They both got more than they bargained for, but at the age of 79, truly a victory dive for Clare's dad.
Meanwhile I'd loaded some stands with vanilla cupcakes and chocolate dipped strawberries as my contribution to our neighbour, Lisa's garden party. The table was groaning with all the gorgeous food creations - including Caroline's famous cream and strawberry jam scones. The story goes that our hosts found the last two amidst the debris in the morning and had them for breakfast - bliss!

Make sure you take yourself to the lovely E3 Victoria Park this weekend (June 20th & 21st). It's going to be magically transformed into a pleasure garden for the 21st century. It's a vibrant and exhilarating free festival and Let them eat Cake are so excited to be there - in this fantastic Spiegel tent.
The London Swing Dance Society are putting on two days of foot tapping, Lindy hopping and shim shamming dance demonstrations and classes in the Spiegel tent throughout the day.
To keep your energy levels high, the East End Women’s Institute will be offering a selection of the finest tea and cakes -all served on a vibrant selection of summer Let them eat Cake stands. Clare from Ltec will be out and about with her family on the Saturday, so should you just have to take one of our cake stands home, can help you parcel it up and send it on it's way. This is definitely one of the highlights of the summer, gutted I can't be there, so please go and enjoy on my behalf.
Last weekend was the infamous Leamington Peace Festival, one of the longest running free peace and equality festivals in the Uk. Amidst the hundreds of tie-dyed teenagers, bubble blowers,hoola hoopers and Action 21 Bike Doctors, you could find Jenny Hudson from www.sweet-as.co.uk. She's a magnet for all those who know about her award winning Belgian chocolates and divine wedding cakes.
Jenny kindly used our floral cake stands to display her gorgeous cookies and sweet summer delights. The hot weather and delicious tastes guaranteed that they sold out faster than she could bake them. So if you missed out on her brownies, order a Fathers day box of them online and kindly offer to help devour them.
