some savoury treats...it was hard to focus on these with the beautiful cakes to gawp at, but i really like the wrap and the tuna tasting spoon - a really nice, fresh start to all the sweetness ahead.
this was possibly my favourite...a stella mccartney-inspired square of gooey, chocolately goodness. i loved the dress, so surely i was gonna love the cake too, right?
close runner up? the dolce and gabbana hazelnut eclair. and below is the whole gang...
a burberry trench coat biscuit and the handy reminder of the ready-to-wear roots of the treats. i think there was a lot of potential for this to go wrong - if they'd had the idea, but hadn't bothered to execute it properly, it would be a pretty disappointing afternoon out. but the care and thought that goes into choosing the collections (which are updated every six months to stay relevant) and how to make them into edible pieces was pretty staggering. a really lovely afternoon out - the perfect birthday treat for a fashionista in your life, or simply as a get-together for friends! afternoon tea is served every day at the berkeley hotel between 1 and 6pm. for more info, check out their website.
