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