Bring Back Tea Time – Bakers Delight

Happy Long Weekend for all my Dearest Readers who are lucky enough to get Monday off :) I’ve had a wonderful long weekend with Mr Bao and Cupcake on our first family trip to Mildura, can’t wait to share with you everything we did ~ But let’s just back track a little, a few weeks ago, I invited to Bakers Delight ‘Bring Back Tea Time’ event at Cristina Re ‘Where A Girl Goes’ tea salon in Collingwood.

Cristina ReI’ve visited Cristina Re before so I knew it was the perfect place to hold this event for Baker’s Delight. They are introducing the two new scone flavours and also trying to promote the motto ‘Bring Back Tea Time’ to get people to take a couple minutes of out their busy work days and enjoy a scone and a cup of tea with friends.

Cristina ReWe were so spoilt with the abundance of scones to choose from, I’ve walked past Baker’s Delight so many times and sure I see the scones on display, but I never knew there were so many favours to choose from!

Beautiful setting with an abundance of scones :)

There were towers of both sweet and savoury scones, I was really lost for choice. The morning tea was sort of like my brunch because I didn’t have much to eat for breakfast, so should I go for a savoury? The spinach, feta and parsley or the cheese and chive both sound like perfect breakfast scones to me ~

Savoury scones

On the other hand, I could jump straight into the sweet scones, I mean when was the last time you had a savoury scone don’t the Americans call them biscuits? :)

Chocolate Mud Scone

I definitely had my eyes and heart fixed on the chocolate mud scone! Great idea must try making at home ~

Jams and Lemon Curd For those who don’t like their scones plain, there was a good variety of jams, lemon curd, butter and clotted cream to serve. Personally, I’m a fan of the traditional cream and strawberry jam, yet I also get caught up in the cream first or jam first argument :P Either way scones, cream and jam are a match made in heaven in my opinion!

Champagne!

And for those who weren’t driving or simply wanted to indulge there was champagne to go with the delectable scones, unfortunately, I was driving and had errands to run after the event so decided to skip the bubbles that day.

I declined the champagne but definitely wanted tea, got my usual English Breakfast and sat down with Jenny (Ichigo Shortcake) and Joyce (Mel Hot or Not) for some Blueberry and White Chocolate scone. I was really impressed at how moist the scones were and had enough flavour that I didn’t need any jam or cream.

And don’t forget that Chocolate Mud scone I had my eyes on before, finally got to try it. Wasn’t as chocolatey as I expected but with the chocolate chips it still had enough flavour, having said that I do have a crazy idea and think these scones would have improved with a huge dollop of Nutella *GRIN*

Orange  Poppy Seed and Orange Chocolate Scone

We then got to try the new limited edition flavours and they are the Orange Poppy Seed with cream cheese frosting and Orange Chocolate scone with chocolate chips folded through with chocolate frosting.

Both scones had wonderful flavours and would have pleased all those orange lovers out there, I did find the Orange Poppy seed scone a little more moist. However, I did like the flavours from the Orange Chocolate scone more and one of the bakers told us that each scone over 100 chocolate ships, so it’s definitely packed full of chocolate ~ These scones are available for 3 weeks and if demand is high enough it will stay for a long longer so don’t miss out :)

I really enjoyed this event having time to sit down, enjoy a scone, have some tea and chat with some friends. I think we should all this more often.

    Nah, Americans would call these scones too; biscuits are really just the plain, flaky rolls that go with gravy or other breakfast dishes. I want the white chocolate one.

    Those scones look SO good! And I didn’t realise that Cristina Re had her own salon! :o

    I love how you went away as a family and I can’t wait to hear all about your trip to Mildura. I love the look of the table; it’s been set so beautifully with all the colourful fresh flowers xx

    Love scones although I’m very much a traditionalist when it comes to flavours. I’m also a generous cream topper too. Gah! Cravings!

    Can’t get my eyes off that chocolate mud scone! I would also expect a level of chocolate goodness from the looks of it. Nice place!
