How we're celebrating National Cream Tea Day 2020

LAST UPDATED: April 7, 2023

It’s National Cream Tea Day today!!

And normally we would be celebrating this day by running Cream Tea Socials or perhaps delivering Cream Tea in a Box. This year however, we needed to think a little differently. So instead we’re challenging you all to make your own scones and share with us your delicious creations!!

Share your creations on Instagram (or Linkedin) with #CreamTeaCreations @AquentUK

Here are some that the Aquent team have made to inspire you:


– Cheese scone, with cheese and pickle filling
– Plain and Fruit Scones with Strawberry Jam and Clotted Cream filling
– Chocolate Chip Scones with Nutella and Marshmallow Filling
– Wholemeal raisin scone with cinnamon cream filling
– Raspberry Scone with Jam and Cream


You can use any scone recipe, but this is the one we use:

100g butter
450g self raising flour
pinch of salt
2tsp baking powder
300ml milk
(makes 12 scones)

Rub the butter into the flour, salt & baking powder. Then mix together with the milk, in small amounts, to form a dough (you may not need all the milk). Then add any extra ingredients (cheese, raisins etc). Roll out and cut circles. Bake for 7-10 mins at 220c.

Happy National Cream Tea Everyone! Now let's get baking and don't forget to share your creations!
