A Mother’s Day cream tea advert has sparked fury for depicting a scone with the jam dolloped on the cream.
The National Trust’s Lanhydrock in Bodmin angered Cornish locals by depicting the delicacy in the rival Devon tradition on a Facebook post.
Outraged locals said they were going to cancel memberships over the blunder.
The Trust apologised for the “heinous mistake”, adding staff will wear #JamFirst badges to support “a proper cream tea”.
About 300 people complained on the post, with some claiming it was “horrifying” and “made them feel sick”.
The member of staff responsible for the post “had been reprimanded and marched back over the Tamar” to neighbouring county Devon, the Trust said.
Richard Levy, Lanhydrock’s Visitor Experience manager, said it was a “genuine mistake” and the staff member was “meekly crawling around trying to avoid the storm” before returning to work on Monday.
