To celebrate my not so un-birthday, my mum, sister and I had the afternoon tea at the Sanderson. If this sentence confuses you, then shame on you for not knowing your Disney facts and songs! Only joking please carry on reading my blog? Anyway, The Sanderson have a themed afternoon tea – The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, inspired by Alice in Wonderland. I love afternoon tea and anything themed so I really though that this was wonderful (get it?!). It reminded me of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, as everything was unique and inventive.
The cakes and sweet treats include a Victoria Sponge with a clock, a mango cheesecake and a mouse, which is contained in an edible chocolate tea cup!Marshmallow mushrooms and carrot meringue!My favourite was this ‘drink me’ potion, which reveals layers of different flavours of passion fruit and coconut when sipped slowly.There was a stand of fruit jelly, which you could help yourself to. This was a nice vintage touch as the jellies were made in Victorian jelly moulds and was presented on cake trolley.
