Accessories you need



Welsh cakes are meant to have a slightly heavier consistency than a scone.  This makes them quite filling.  

They can be enjoyed with butter or whipped cream instead of sugar, and go especially well with tea or coffee and a table of garrulous friends and family.  

They are also awesome for school lunches.
