Mary Berry; What I’ll be serving at my Great British Garden Party

National Garden Scheme President and ‘Queen of Cakes’ Mary Berry will be hosting her own Great British Garden Party this September with her family and friends.

“I like to give people my summer favourites at a special tea party. So I will be serving cucumber finger sandwiches with the crusts cut off, home-made scones with whipped cream and home-made strawberry jam and, of course, my Victoria sandwich. Make cakes, have fun and help the National Garden Scheme support the wonderful nursing charities that need our help more than ever,” says Mary.
