On the 16th my eldest daughter turned 8!!! I cannot believe it’s been 8 years already since the first time I got to hold her in my arms. She was so tiny! <3 And now she is turning into a beautiful girl. We love you so much princess and we are all very proud of you!!
She celebrated in school with her friends on the 16th itself and I made some Two-tone Rose Cupcakes.
On Sunday, for Victoria’s 8th birthday we had a little party with some of our closest friends. She had a blast and got many wonderful presents (thank you everyone!).
As she is now turning into a little girl, she asked me for a more “grown up theme” for her birthday party. So we decided to go for a “high tea”.
So you can guess that I have been really busy in the kitchen this past week, as I obviously prepared all the food at home!
The food was all “high tea” related. So I tried to make only dainty things:
Scones with Cream and Strawberry Jam
Rose Meringue Sandwiches
Earl Grey and Chocolate Tea Bag Shortbread
Lemon and Lavender Possets
Hazelnut and Nutella Palmiers
Salmon and Ham & Cheese Tea Sandwiches
Ham and Cheese Sicilian Brioches
And obviously… a cake! I made her a Rosette Mud Cake.
It’s a chocolate mud cake filled with chocolate ganache and decorated with a deliciously silky Swiss meringue buttercream.
For the adults, I also made some Green Tea Mojito shooters.
I am going to post all the new recipes in the next few days. So stay tuned.
Now it is back to “normal life” and a little rest! Stay tuned for all the remaining recipes!
