Tea Tent for Hire, Props for hire and Tea cups for hire.About Us

Dottie About Cake provides an English afternoon tea service for 50 to 5,000 people which will be popping up at public events over the summer period.  We serve a lovely cuppa in our tea tent, vintage style and offer you a place to rest your legs and enjoy a delicious little treat or two during your busy day.  Our lovely staff will serve your table whilst you step back in time amongst our original vintage memorabilia.

We are a social enterprise encouraging and supporting people into work, particularly women who have been out of the workplace for a period of time.  We support flexible and dynamic working and our fabulous bakers cook up a storm whilst their children are in school.  We support those who struggle socially and suffer from anxiety related and mental health issues and watch their confidence grow in our little piece of heaven.

We serve a tasty range of finger sandwiches, Victoria Sandwich cake, delicious scones with homemade strawberry jam and clotted cream, the best gluten free treats and a range of seasonal specialities, all served on our vintage bone china cake stands.  We make a lovely cup of coffee and a good British cuppa, a range of herbal teas or a lovely iced peach tea on those hot summer afternoons – all served in a fine bone china cup and saucer.

Our lovely staff will welcome you with a smile and a friendly ‘best in class’ tea service.
We hope you will find the time to pop in and support our little venture.

Dottie about Cake is run by Helena.  Helena has been in the events industry for 30 years and is passionate about customer service.  We also have a tent run by Jude which is based in Kent.
