Cupcakes and a cuppa - The perfect afternoon tea from The Co-operative
17 October 2012
Available in two tasty and popular varieties, chocolate and vanilla, the cupcakes will be in selected stores nationwide from 17 October at just £1.50 for a pack of two. They are perfect enjoyed with a delicious cup of The Co-operative’s iconic Fairtrade 99 Tea for a spot of afternoon indulgence.
The Co-operative Chocolate Cupcakes have a deliciously light sponge made from free-range eggs. The pretty cakes are topped with creamy chocolate buttercream and marshmallows, and decorated with sugar decorations - perfect for those with a sweet tooth.
For an ice-cream-cone inspired dessert, The Co-operative Vanilla Sundae Cupcakes are simply divine. Vanilla sponges, also made with free-range eggs, are topped with vanilla buttercream and finished off with mini milk chocolate flakes and sugar decorations.
Meanwhile, The Co-operative’s Fairtrade 99 Tea, which is more than 100 years old, has been given a fabulous new “retro” look this month to celebrate its heritage, as well as being awarded with a stamp of approval by consumer testers at the Good Housekeeping Institute.
