Yum! I made this for our whitsun tea - but used lemongrass and ginger cordial for the syrup. Thanks for the recipe. (oh and I used half a cup of milk, not 12 cups!) Thankyou for the inspiration.

Thankyou for your lovely words! I have been a bit erratic posting lately, our server seems to keep having problems - sigh!
I don't have an etsy shop, the things I make keep walking out the door with friends, or staying well loved in the hands of my own two boys!
