Tunnock’s Tea Cake Gift Box

For number 3 of my Mothers, Day Series 2017 is this pretty gift box.


My mum adores Tunnock’s Tea Cakes! For those of you who are not aware of these wonderful treats, they are milk chocolate domes filled with marshmallow with a biscuit base. They have been around since 1956 and kind of an institution here in the UK.
