Last night felt like a dream, wandering through corridors of edible goodies, picking Macarons off banisters and eating pillows, taking bites out of a popcorn bath and picking apart a meringue rug….
But I wasn’t in a dream, I was in the Tate and Lyle Tasting House!
Enter into the tasting house
We were greeted with an array of macarons, covering the bannisters and every windowsill in sight!
Macarons displays ripe for the tasting!
The British golden syrup room was a wondrous display of golden syrup, one of my favourite baking ingredients.
Its the Golden Syrup lion!
Very British Baking
The second room we entered was the Pirates of the Carribean room, with a huge treasure chest made out of gingerbread! We spray painted our own gold doubloons, sampled the chocolate rum and raisin delights, and feasted on mountains of jewelled sweets!
An edible treasure chest of goodies
An edible sword!
Next we entered into the Mediterranean bedroom of delights, which might have been my favourite room!
Meringue rug of the sweetest, most delicious meringues I have ever tasted!
Bath of caramel popcorn
Lustrous popcorn cupcakes
From there, we entered into room of different edible delights, including a huge edible turtle, with real eggs filled with cake!
Turtle and eggs, all edible!
One of my favourite pieces was the 5 foot long Mardi Gras rainbow cake, so delicious I couldn’t tear myself away!
Taste the rainbow
And the Easter Island mud cake statue!
Take a bite…
Probably tying for my favourite room was the Mayan room, with a temple of fudge and delicious chocolate goodies, including a white chocolate heart filled with the gooiest salted caramel.
I worship your Sweetness!
I genuinely had one of the best evenings of my life, and cant thank enough my buddies over at Tate and Lyle, Mischief PR and my lovely friend Gemma at GG Closet for getting me in to this wonderland!
I only wish I had some of the recipes for these amazing creations!
