Rose Daykin, the author of Butter Celebrates and owner of Vancouver's Butter Baked Goods has a special spot in her heart for tea parties:

"When I think of my mum, I always think of tea parties. She loves them! But then, what’s not to love about a tea party? Little sandwiches, baby scones, maybe a sausage roll or two. Oh, and let’s not forget about the delicious cake. After all, that’s what this is all about.

Her Brown Butter Honey Tea Cake clearly isn't your ordinary tea cake; the nuttiness of the brown butter pairs up with the moody sweetness of the honey. It's a cake fit for tea time, but also tomorrow's breakfast.
