Super for any street party, garden party or celebration
Cheesecake – can you have a gathering without a cheesecake?
British summertime, for me, is all about the strawberries, sweet, juicy and delicious.
My favourite way to eat them is in a cheesecake and this is super 🙂 also a little bit of a showstopper too – here’s the cheesecake recipe
And here’s the lovely bunting I’ve bought – it’s super!
This pack might help too!
And I found these which I thought were super cute and lovely for the kids to pop onto of fairy cakes or cupcakes
Anyway I hope you all have a fabulous day whatever you get up to and I hope you enjoy your day.
Whether that’s street party food, BBQ food or garden party food – it doesn’t really matter. It’s just lovely to be able to gather together and celebrate, or not it’s up to you 🙂
