Yesterday was an important day, it was my BIRTHDAY hehe 🙂 I admit my Dearest Readers, I’m one of those attention-seeking friends and love celebrating my birthday with all my loved ones! Usually my birthday celebrations last for at least a week…but it’s quite often that they will last for a month 😛
I got lucky and my birthday was a public holiday, because Australia day landed on a Sunday so we got the Monday off as well YAY! So i definitely made the most of this long weekend, the first birthday celebration started with a high tea with my fellow blogger friends at Ganache on Toorak Rd. It’s one of my favourite chocolate cafes in Melbourne so I was thrilled when they told me, they could do a high tea for me in their back room.
For $30 each we all started with a glass of champers followed by a traditional high tea set with savoury and sweets and of course a choice between the famously delicious hot chocolate, tea or chocolate infused chai tea ~
Ta Da! This was our high tea set, with a full plate of freshly made sandwiches on the bottom with roast chicken and smoked salmon. It was then followed by quiche with goats chesse and another with tomato, it had a smooth texture. But what we all really enjoyed was the Parisian tea cake which is an almond topped with chocolate, hazelnuts or cranberries. It was so moist and lightly dense and not too sweet for my blogger friends 😛
On the very top layer was a range of they signature gateaux cakes with hazelnut fan slice, brownie mousse slice, rapsberry chocolate mousse and passionfruit and mango. They’re all so delicious but the hazelnut fan slice was by far my top pick.
As if we didn’t have enough food, there was also two stands full of macarons, chocolate pralines and Swiss chocolate muffins. The texture of the macarons were wonderful, especially the dark chocolate macaron. We had so much food, we were all given paper boxes to take things home, so even though Mr Bao didn’t come he tried a little bit of everything hehe
Macarons goes best with hot chocolate 🙂 They actually make the hot chocolates using a Ganache base which is why it’s super smooth, rich and utterly wonderful!
I was honestly so spoilt that day, because I outsourced my camera duties to Agnes who took all the photos for this post thank you! And then BBFF Shellie totally outdid herself again but making an AMAZING Thai Milk Tea crepe cake!!!
There were so many layers, I swear there’s at least over 25 crepes to make this cake!!! I can’t thank Shellie enough I’ve been gushing over this cake since she’s made it and posted it on her Instagram 🙂
If you like Thai Milk Tea you’ll definitely like this crepe cake, especially when paired with the Thai Milk Tea drizzle, if you’re game enough and have the patience Shellie has already blogged the recipe here ~
Absolutely loved the cake and thanks Ash for taking this photo for me 🙂 One of my favourite birthday photos yet!
Awwww Thanh closed his eyes in this pic! But this is my blogmily 🙂 Thanks so much everyone for coming! Hope you all had fun and I still think starting my blog and getting to know you guys was the best decision I’ve made!
