Here’s another snippet about how delightful VP is.

Angel Adoree of the Vintage Patisserie, has also put together a DIY picnic basket for under £10 that can serve four.

“The basket is all about stepping back in time with a contemporary twist,” explains Adoree. “My generation have forgotten the art of the simple life. Baking something from scratch is easy, healthy and so rewarding, not to mention cheap. This is why I’ve added a few classic items to the picnic that are easy to make and visually look exciting.”

The basket features homemade sweet and savoury scones, savoury cupcakes, clotted cream and strawberry preserve, red pesto and cold green jasmine tea with berries: simply make one cup of jasmine tea with a large tablespoon of leaves, add sugar to taste and then add to a large bottle of filtered water then place in the fridge or freezer until required. Pour and add the berries for extra sweetness. “Picnics can be cheap – it’s just a matter of planning,” says Adoree.
