      No me neither Jeffrey but I made a high tea for my daughter when she had her baby (almost two years ago now) and this size was perfect. I suppose though a little is better than nothing. Have a great day!

      Yes Ginger they do seem more special. I made them for my daughter for a high tea and it was a lovely addition without being too much – especially with all the other goodies! Have a lovely day!

      Hi Charlotte I’m glad I could help. It is difficult because different countries have different names for things so it can be confusing. I hope you enjoy the mousse if you make it 🙂 Thanks for pinning!
