Montgomery County mom used to make English scones for friends. Now she owns what may be the only U.S.-based cream tea company.

April 27, 2023

About the business: Mrs. Bakewell’s is one of the only, if not the only, cream tea companies in the United States. Rose Bakewell, its founder, packs the boxes herself with her made-to-order English scones, imported clotted tea and jam, bamboo spoons, and Twinings tea sachets and ships them off to a nationwide clientele. The Clarksburg company is almost exclusively online, save for the sampler boxes she sells at Germantown’s Butler’s Orchard.
