  • Product Information
    • Queen Victoria Date and Walnut Cake Cube

      A wonderful accompaniment to afternoon tea, the date and walnut fruitcake cube is handmade in a bakery in the Cotswold using the finest ingredients. A way of socialising, afternoon tea was popular in the Victorian period, particularly with Queen Victoria who often hosted tea parties with her ladies in formal dress. Known for her Victoria Sponge cake, early Victorian afternoon tea treats also included seed and fruitcake. The quintessentially British Victoria Sponge cake was developed for children, as it was believed it may be dangerous for children to eat cake containing large seeds or fruit pieces.
