Win Afternoon Tea For Two, £49.90 - With Best Caption

Leckenby's, mad woman, great cakes, seabirds and all for nowt

Published on December 12th 2011.

Win Afternoon Tea For Two, £49.90 - With Best Caption

The winner is: 'She was only the baker's daughter, but her mouth could take two cream horns at once'. So could the Anonymous who posted this please get in touch with me: jonathans@theconfidentials.co.uk so we can arrange their 'teas'. 

SO Sleuth went to the Leckenby's launch.

Leckenby's does cakes, sandwiches, tarts, teas, wines, lunches, meals....it's a Patisserie Valerie for the North but less every-bloody-where.

Apparently at the launch there was a young lady who fell in love with the cakes and fancies on offer. 

This is her here. And above.

Caption Competition

Sleuth has no idea who she is apart from the fact her middle name is 'Gannet'.

Anyway Sleuth has an idea for you.

Give him a caption to the picture of the woman with the love eyes for the cakes and fancies and Confidential and Leckenby's will give you, any time, any occasion, the Luxury Champagne Afternoon Tea For Two for £24.95 per person (total £49.90). 

This includes sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, tea or coffee served with half a bottle of Laurent Perrier Champagne.

Or even give him a caption to the picture of the Gannet below. That would work for Sleuth as well.

Suzie was frustrated. She'd had a bad day at work and hadn't had any luck in love since splitting from Jeremy six months ago. She decided to cheer herself up by going to the new LECKENBY's cafe. Her face lit up as she saw the handsome waiter approach with a tray filled with delicious creamy fairy cakes and chocolate fingers. As she ogled, lustily, the feast before her, she instantly knew what would make herself feel better...

Are we going to have a winner or is this going to be another one of those which runs and runs indefinitely?

Jonathan Schofield - editorDecember 22nd 2011.

I've asked the woman in the picture to give me a description before tomorrow. The gannet doesn't get a say.
