London in all it’s Christmassy glory is one of my favourite things in the world, it’s impossible to not feel instantly festive when you’re greeted by the giant tree at St Pancras Station (this year sponsored by Moyses Stevens, the luxury florist in the station).
So, for my birthday’s, I’m fortunate to not really need for anything so I always enjoy having a little trip to do something with my mum as a present, so as a belated 27th birthday outing (1 month before my 28th haha) we head to Cutter & Squidge for an Aladdin themed afternoon tea before venturing the the Harry Potter: History of Magic exhibition at The British Library.
Cutter & Squidge is one of my fave lil spots in London for a delicious slice of cake, so heading downstairs into their Cave of Wonders for an afternoon of Aladdin themed treats was right up my street, even more so as Aladdin is my favourite film ever.
First off you are offered a selection of bellinis (I highly recommend the strawberry one) and given the ‘Genie’s Welcome’ – what I can only describe as meringue topped candy floss with a berry mouse at the bottom. It was absolutely delicious and wish I could eat this every day forever.
Along with a selection of finger sandwiches, the High Tea also includes cheese puffs, mini savoury tarts, shortbread, macaroons and cake. I even got a little birthday candle in my slice.
There’s a large selection of tea’s to choose from, I went with a very berry brew which I loved so much I hand two lamp’s worth. We were in the cave for almost two hours enjoying the atmosphere and definitely recommend booking a table whilst you can, I think this was the nicest selection of food I’ve had at an afternoon tea.
