Parisian Afternoon Tea

The Tealicious ladies are a bit in love with everything Parisian right now.  We have mini obsessions with so many Parisian things - Rachel Khoo's fabulous Little Paris Kitchen series, David Lebovitz's blog, the Paris, My Sweet book and Richard Bertinet's new book, Pastry (not to mention a slightly perplexing older man crush on Michel Roux Jr by one of us); we knew we had to have a Parisian afternoon tea very soon.  In our enthusiasm for the theme, we had a lot of ideas and made a lot of cake - check out our menu here.  Luckily we had our handy takeaway boxes so people could take home what they didn't quite have room for.  See below for pictures of the day!

Petite treats - Scones, Paris brest, pear & chocolate financier,
rose & raspberry macaron, raspberry & lemon madeleines

Gougeres, palmiers and red onion, goats cheese & fig tarts

Fraisier - a strawberry and cream cake

Inside the fraisier - filled with strawberries

Creme brulee cheesecake - fun with blowtorches!

The sugar syrup from the brulee was a divine flavour

Cherry charlotte russe
