History of Maids of Honour Tarts
It all started with the dainty Maids of Honour cakes after which Newens is named. According to legend, Henry VIII, King of England (1509 – 1547), came across Queen Anne Boleyn and her Maids of Honour (her young ladies in attendance), eating cakes from a silver dish. Tasting one for himself, the King was so delighted by its taste that he immediately confiscated the recipe and demanded it be kept secret in a locked iron box at Richmond Palace. The delicious cakes in question are now known as Maids of Honour. They are scrumptiously sweet and yet slightly savoury, light and crisp yet soft in the middle. What’s more it takes a careful combination of the finest ingredients and the lightest hand to make Maids of Honour – a skill perfected at Newens over two centuries.
