Decadent Savoury Afternoon Tea Birthday Party

Brunch & Co don't normally do events two weekends in a row but we made an exception for the lovely Ayne when she requested a private afternoon tea event to celebrate her friend Raycher's birthday.  

As the Birthday Girl and her friends are not sweet toothed foodies, we got to work creating a selection of tasty savoury treats (with a few sweet ones snuck in - what's an afternoon tea without a few sweet treats?)

Here's what we served:

Mini beef rendang pies
Kasbah pastries (spinach, fetta, pinenuts & sumac)
Spanish meatballs
Hwee Yin's delicious savoury tomato & onion tarts
Coronation chicken finger sandwiches
Fairy bread
Double coconut muffins with a passionfruit icing
Pumpkin scones
Caesar salad inspired deviled eggs
Bloody Mary shots

The finale was a special birthday chocolate mousse cake a la Heston Blumenthal - the crust of the cake had a special ingredient called "popping candy" or "space dust" - popular with kids as the little pieces of candy explode in your mouth once they come into contact with moisture.  It was fun watching our guests' reactions as they got stuck into their slices of cake!

Phew! 18 tummies full to the brim with all our homemade treats....Brunch & Co is ready for a weekend off! Our next brunch is on Sunday 3rd June - we are so excited as my sister Jen, from Melbourne, will be flying in as our special guest helper! The event is a surprise birthday celebration...ssssshhhh!
