Someone at work told me the funniest story the other day involving a Tunnocks Teacake. Well, a woman dressed up as one (Tunnocks are from Scotland) for the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth games. Apparently, the women in question, a nursery worker, had phoned her boss to tell him she was sick, but was later spotted on TV dancing around in a giant Tunnocks tea cake outfit. You couldn't make it up....
So now seemed a good a time as any to let you in on quite possibly THE best crockery ever made: the Tunnocks tea cake plate, via Hunkydory Home.
While they're are a bit on the pricey side (£14.50 each), how cool are these plates?! Although, I tell you what, they won't do much for anyone on a diet. If my tea was presented on one I'd definitely expect nothing less than a Tunnocks tea cake for 'afters', wouldn't you?
And no living room would surely be complete without a custard cream footstool? This trio of treats has been designed by Scottish designer Gillian Kyle; the plate is bone china and has been hand finished in the UK's historic ceramic capital, Stoke on Trent.
