Congratulations to Stephanie the winner of the Cake Bake & Sweets Show from my first giveaway ever held on TeaThymes.com!

I was fortunate to have been able to visit the Cake Bake Sweets Show . The event was a much anticipated inaugural show that run from Friday to Sunday showcasing what's on offer - workshop-like classes from professionals from great talented bakers, chefs and cake artists alike.

CROPFEST




They might look weird and wonky... but they still taste good!


 CropFest is a fantastic project run by the Youth Food Movement that raises the issue of food waste and how we all should be celebrating the whole crop produce despite any size or shape of your fruit or veg!

Top 5 Wine & Dessert Pairings

Author Bio: Michael Lowecroft is passionate about wines and vintage whisky, and is always looking for great purchases before he invites friends and family around for dinner. Michael lives in London with his wife and is a management consultant for a living.

Short of spending your time scouring the shelves of your local supermarket or specialist wine retailer and looking for wines specifically labelled as “Dessert Wines,” or embarrassingly having to ask for advice because, despite wanting to appear a wine connoisseur, you have no idea of what to look for or buy, it can be difficult to match wine with dessert.
Most people, after buying wine for a dinner on a few occasions, know what goes well with chicken or lamb, for example, but make what might be seen as a fatal etiquette error by simply sticking with the same wine for the dessert. Whether this is a better or worse scenario than pulling out a bottle of port or sherry under the assumption that it’s a dessert accompaniment “for all seasons,” we’ll leave up to you to decide.
We’ve also decided to help you out with five wines that are great for desserts, and have even added a dessert suggestion so you can’t go wrong!

Wizarding World of Harry Potter, USA

THE WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER
Universal Studios USA


We're going to Pigfarts!* Hogwarts!
Gryffindor. Hufflepuff. Slytherin. Ravenclaw. 
Which house is yours?

I did the Pottermore sorting hat quiz ages ago when Pottermore was in it's beta stage. It gave me Slytherin! I was hoping for Ravenclaw but heck, Slytherin is a good one too. Muahahah! 

I was so excited to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida. It's on the Adventure Island side of the Universal Studios theme park and it's towards the back. Once you step over the bridge after visiting the dinosaurs from Jurassic Park you already see the snow-capped British-style cottages and the Hogwarts castle.

CAKE BAKE & SWEETS SHOW 
(Giveaway X2 Tickets up for grabs!)


Blow out the candles! 
Hi TeaThymers! So if you didn't know, last week was my birthday and it was a really low-key event this year. It was mostly spent working in the daytime at my new job (yay! a new day job to sustain my foodie adventures!) and then a scrumptious dinner at Queenie's in Surry Hills with friends.

But it isn't a birthday without CAKE!
My parents spoiled me with a mango cake from chinatown. A sweet fruity fresh sponge and cream layered cake that has been my favourite type of birthday cake for many years now.  

Speaking of cake, I have a delightful surprise for my TeaThymes.com readers today. In celebration of my post-birthday and in collaboration with the Cake Bake and Sweets Show I have two standard entry tickets up for grabs to those who wish to enter my first giveaway!

MOOBERRY


I was fortunate to attend an opening night for Mooberry's latest flagship store in Neutral Bay last week. The launch was fantastic! Fancy and all-out fabulous, there was a huge line up of media and socialites lining up to get inside the lofty three-storey breakfast and dessert bar. 

There's two shiny new Porsche outside the place and a chance to take your picture before you get inside. We opt out for the whole picture thing - not one for being in front of the camera for the most part - and join another line-up to try out their Mooberry products.
