Totally Scrumptious

My daughter and I went for afternoon tea at One Aldwych yesterday as a late birthday treat for her.

The menu was inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and boy was it delicious.

I haven't any photos of the savoury side of our tea as we munched our way through those pretty quickly and even had seconds of the devine stilton and leek quiches and the Heritage tomato tarts.

I do however, have photos of the sweet side of the afternoon.  

I chose a Organic Lavender Grey tea and my daughter had a Smooth Caramel tea.  Water was very much needed to quench the thirst after the sweetness of so many gorgeous desserts.

This was how the desserts were presented to us.  Yes that is candyfloss and it was delicious.  Our waiter didn't tell us of their flavours it was a guessing game which we guessed correctly after devouring them all. haha.

On the left are Eton Messes and on the right Chocolate Caramel Milks, the eggs in the middle are dusted with gold (I think these were my favourite).  We also had scones, brioche and 4 Cocoa Bean Financiers, which my daughter ate, they were far too chocolatey for me and you can just see them in the photo at the bottom dusted with gold too.

Now this is how I would like my egg in the morning and no it is not a normal "Cadbury's creme egg".  This one is filled with vanilla cheesecake and mango.  It was so delicious that I ate half of my daughter's "shell" too.  ooops
It was a wonderful afternoon and I was very full coming home on the train.
