Freckle Fart from KMart
I admit, it doesn’t take me much to get excited about something if I know there is tea involved. I need very little excuse to have friends over and break out the (almost-good-but-if-you-break-it-I-won’t-break-you) china, bake some goodies and have a little party in the sunshine.
With that in mind, when I was invited to have Baker’s Delight cater my next gathering with their new lemon sweets range AND provide me with a beautiful tea set with which to woo my guests, it was hard to say no. The tea set from T2 truly is divine – as are the new lemon swirls we were trying out.
oh yeah baby!
I’m a little bit partial to baked goods from time to time, but don’t enjoy your usual chocolate or strawberry-flavoured things. Caramel I can come at in a pinch, but if you have lemon-flavoured something I’ll most definitely indulge. I adore lemon curd and it is just such a wonderful partner to soft bread and cream cheese frosting. Now I hate getting sticky and that oozing deliciousness above is full of stick, but that didn’t stop me. I just figured next time I could use a fork, like a lay-dee.
They were warmed just a little bit and the cream cheese frosting melted ever-so-slightly into a gorgeous puddle. Sigh.
The individual Gourmet Scrolls were so sweet in their little brown cases, and a big hit with this beautiful babe:
And if tea parties aren’t cool enough, I have eight $10 vouchers to give away to one reader. Buy eighty bucks worth of lemon swirls, or perhaps just buy yourself some nice bread each week for a couple of months.
All’s you gotta do is tell me which four people you’d invite to a tea party at your place.
Me? I’d have Stephen Fry, Hilary Clinton, Ricky Gervais and Roseanne Barr.
Competition closes Wednesday November 28 at 5pm Queensland time, where I will choose a winner based on which answer is the most interesting. Please make sure you’re contactable. And good luck!
*disclaimer: Baker’s Delight provided the scrolls and gifted me the T2 teapot and teacups, along with eight $10 vouchers. I provided the general awesomeness and medium frivolity.
