When The Countess of Brighton & Hackney called the bakery and asked us to cater for her up-coming Christmas Tea Party, we couldn't believe our luck!
Baking for royalty?! Yes please!
The Countess of Brighton & Hackney is a much loved local celebrity and she had decided it was high time she reward all her loyal subjects with a party and of course the honour of her company for an afternoon.
The lovely Countess
I made all-sorts of goodies for the Countess and her guests to enjoy and admire.
The gorgeous venue H Bar in Hove was adorned with Gingerbread Cookie decorations...
...and I used candy flavourings to coat the entrance so guests were immediately greeted by a glorious sweet smell.
I made both Ferrero Rocher and Mince Pie Macarons for the event.
Even the cake stands were suitably dressed for Christmas, with little Santa hats on top...
...and I scattered sugar snowflakes and sweets across all the tables.
All the cupcakes were Christmas themed, with Christmas sprinkles, bows, bears, Santa hats, Christmas puddings, you name it the Countess had it.
I made Mini Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Buttercream.
Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache & Chocolate Cupcakes with Hazelnut Ganache.
The Countess and her adoring public had a fantastic time at her party and absolutely adored all the cakes and bakes. Which I was very thankful for since I have heard that if you upset the Countess you make get beheaded! Or even worse dumped in slurry!
I have some more detailed pictures of the cupcakes and cookie decorations but I will post those separately. I may even save them for the mega Christmas Baking post I'm planning...
