Jubilee celebrations

Although I am a few days late uploading my jubilee food pictures, I thought I must share them on my blog. The original plan for my jubilee celebration foods were simple traditional English favourites such as finger sandwiches, scones, mini pork pies and a union jack style cake. I got my wish of making a union jack style cake and finger sandwiches, but was requested to make lots of "proper food" which in my family means Jamaican food. I usually share recipes but as though the cake is from a Daily Mail link, and the other foods were my nan's creations, I thought I would, just for this once share pictures.
Here are some of the food from my jubilee party.

Recipe for cake Fiona Carin cake
