Friday Follow: Regency Food and Jane Austen Cakes and Cookies

Recently a reader asked me about making a cake for a Jane Austen themed party. This time of year is always good for apple inspired desserts. For this week's Friday Follow I thought I would take you down the caloric path of least resistance:

It's time to trot out the Jane Austen teapot cookies again. While many of you are already familiar with these delightful (but time intensive cookies), some of you may not be aware of this potential source for family fun in the kitchen! Click here for detailed, step-by-step instructions. 

The easiest online source for Regency recipes is Jane Austen Centre's online magazine. Click on this link to find a variety of recipes for all subjects. 

Sally Lunn's Buns from Delightful Repast: For Sunday brunch. Yum!

Gooseberries in the imitation of hops: Got plenty of time? Here's a Regency recipe for you!

Mr and Mrs Weston's wedding cake, Emma 2009
Emma 2009 wedding cake: featured on this blog 18 months ago, this cake was made with two different molds and decorated with real roses and sugared grapes. Lovely.

I absolutely adore the cookies! When I received a promotion and switched libraries a few years boss is a fellow Janeite and she threw me a "going away tea". It was perfect...this reminds me of that. I would love an occasion to make them!

Those teapot cookies are the cutest things. I would totally screw them up.

We have the mold for the top of the wedding cake! I think I'll have to get that film version asap... The cookies are just wonderful, too.

Don't know if you're interested, but this cheese is era appropriate, and also, it is made of cheese. I love cheese.
