Pretty in Pink Afternoon Tea Menu.
Originally from Devonshire County, England, clotted cream is a thick, buttery cream often used as a topping for desserts.
It is still a specialty of Devon, Cornwall, and Somerset, as this is where the right breed of cattle are raised with a high enough cream content to produce clotted cream.
It is also known as Devon cream or Devonshire cream. Clotted cream has a consistency similar to soft butter.
