Close to 200,000 princesses were born around the world today, but there's one special one I'm celebrating! Princess Cambridge, the second child of Prince William and Princess Kate, was born this morning in London. With the royal couple's fourth anniversary having just passed, and now the arrival of a new royal baby, (hoping they'll announce the name before the night is out!) I'm ready to royally celebrate with some sweets, savories, and maybe a few royal "dork"umnetaries. (That's what Jamie calls my beloved documentary shows...)
My mom bought me this pretty Tea For One a few years ago for my birthday. I showed off my newest one a few days ago, (check out my Strawberry Teatime Torte for a great follow up dessert recipe) so I thought I'd better pull out this pretty one and give it the spotlight today. I just love these! Once I collect enough, I'll have a special tea party for my book club friends and we'll each use our own pretty set.
I'm sure there are lots of ways to put together a delicious Cucumber Sandwich. I like mine savory and these are nothing but a simple twist on my Cucumber Flowers recipe. Hope you enjoy! Let me know how you plan to celebrate the newest baby to join the royal family.
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 c. mayonnaise
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp. dill
1 loaf white bread
Mix the cream cheese, mayonnaise, garlic, and dill, until smooth. Spread thickly on each slice of bread. Slice cucumbers thinly and place on top of cream cheese mixture. Put sandwiches together and slice off edges using a sharp, serrated knife. Chill until ready to serve. Garnish with strips of cucumber peel, herbs, and flowers.
