The traditional doily has made an comeback with the resurgence of afternoon tea and they really enhance the presentation of your cakes. They are beautifully decorated to take in the vintage colours of a traditional afternoon tea. They are purely decorative and serve no specific purpose, but they were always commonly used in times gone by to enhance the presentation of cakes and scones, and often they were used when the plates available for serving were plain, and so the doilies provided the decoration. We are now able to provide you with rather more than the traditional plain white doilies. Some of our favourite tableware ranges such as Truly Scrumptious and Pastries and Pearls have decorated doilies as a part of the comprehensive range, and they fit perfectly with the other items of tableware that make up these selections. We even have metallic silver ones that are brilliant if you are celebrating a silver wedding anniversary. Just place a cake doily on the serving plate or cake stand and place your cakes on them.
