Vintage inspired Iced Biscuits

Sunday 9th saw me doing some commercial photography. The shoot was organised up at the Vintage Tea room in Pontypool and featured the vintage china of Cherry Blossom Fancies – a Caerphilly based business offering vintage china for hire and the decorative cakes and iced biscuits of the Vintage Tea Room at Pontypool Museum.

Taking inspiration from the beautiful patterns and motifs of the vintage china, Mary Mahabir – the proprietor of the VIntage tea room has created a range of iced biscuits and miniature cakes and fancies.

Iced Biscuits: perfect for quirky wedding favours

For a vintage inspired wedding or other special occasion, having beautiful china is a must – but imagine how cool it would be to have iced biscuits and cakes that matched the decorative patterns of the china. I particularly liked the pattern on this Salisbury China tea set by Bradleys of England:

These iced daffodil cakes were styled to compliment the pattern of a vintage tea set brought by Sue of Cherry Blossom Fancies. These cakes would of course be ideal for St Davids day celebration.

Creating these iced biscuits really is a labour of love – each flower and detail is hand crafted and the attention to detail is most impressive

A busy afternoon saw us shoot a selection of table settings and detail shots – it’s always great fun to work with other creative people. Here’s a brief image gallery from the day:

This shoot was commissioned by Vintage Tea Party Wales – a collaboration between Vintage Tea Room at Pontypool Museum and Cherry Blossom Fancies. Cherry Blossom Fancies can be contacted via facebook (see link above).


Enjoying a traditional afternoon tea is a great way to spend a couple of hours. The vintage tea room in Pontypool Museum not only offers a vintage setting to sit and enjoy your tea but also the opportunity to take a stroll around the museum. Pontypool museum presents a collection of artefacts reflecting the history of the area. Pontypool is particularly rich in industrial heritage and Pontypool museum particularly prides itself on its collection of Japanware.
