Thomas Tunnock Ltd


By Appointment to the Rt Hon the Earl of Belmont, 
Purveyors of Tea Cakes,
Thomas Tunnock Limited, Uddingston, Glasgow.

The Tunnock's Teacake, popular in the British Isles, comprises a small round shortbread biscuit covered with a dome of Italian meringue and a whipped egg white concoction similar to marshmallow.

This is then encased in a thin layer of milk or dark chocolate and wrapped in a red and silver foil paper for the more popular milk chocolate variety; or blue, black, and gold wrapping for the dark.

First issued March, 2010.

N.B. Editors: the alter ego, viz. Belmont, simply cannot have enough of these ethereal biccies (!)

I imagine the competition for such an honour in the tea cake sector is intense?
Talking about culinary matters, find "Storyville, Pastry Chef" on BBC iplayer. It was shown on BBC4 at the weekend. Superb programme.

Indeed, there's a lengthy queue; so they must bide their time for the Belmont Seal of Approval. :-)
