Sunday the 22nd July 2012 was the date for M's Fashion Show & Afternoon Tea... to be held in her ever so chic Boutique - MUNROS- - in the Millstream Arcade - Mends Street - South Perth.

Ladies were invited to join M from 2pm - 4pm... but as with any enjoyable Sunday Afternoon - who could dare leave at 4pm.

Tables with crisp white cloths - dainty rose bowl vases with white flowers saw the Boutique looking so fresh and inviting....for such a day.....Glasses of bubbling Champagne met us on arrival -  and an Introduction explaining the days events by the lovely M.

Models walked amongst the tables - showcasing what new lines M presented - all so very stylish - splashes of colour ranging from Taupe's - Apricots through to your Blues, Purples and Reds.

M asked me to cater for the afternoon occasion -- and with that request. i started planning what small eats both savoury and sweet i would make and what colour theme would best suit M's Boutique. ........Deciding on Ivory - Chocolate and a touch of Lime Green  the photos below show what creations i made.

A 6 inch round x 6 inch high Ivory covered cake - ivory drapes and a large Lime Green single flower - surrounded by Chocolate Leaves.
A small plague with the letter M sitting to the side.

My mini sponge cupcakes - filled with a milk chocolate Ganache - Embossed lids and topped with an assortment of Ivory - Chocolate and Lime Green Flowers. All sitting in gorgeous little laser cut Cupcake Wrappers.

Larger Chocolate Flowers.

Vintage wrapped Chocolates - two styles of paper - Euro Stamped and Patterned paper - with cutting and sewing instructions - how appropriate i thought.

Mini Dark Chocolate Tarts filled with a Dark Chocolate Morello Cherry  filling - topped with a Morello Cherry.

Sitting in precious little pots I created  a Berry, Apple and Rhubarb Compote - allowed it to cool them made it into a Jelly - witch i poured over set Creamy Cheesecake - Topped a dainty little wooden spoon of each and served.

Mini Port Wine Jelly Cakes - filled with a Vanilla Bean Cream.

Using my home made Lime Marmalade - i added this to my Cheesecake mixture - piped into tiny Filo Cases and topped with Chocolate Pashmak Floss. The tang and zest of the Lime matched perfectly with the melt in your mouth Chocolate Floss.

My Dark Chocolate Thins - these cookies were decorated with White embossed tops with one of my mini flowers.


Thank you to M for creating this day - and allowing me to be part of it.

That's something for this monstrous sweet tooth that I'm cursed with! Boy, how I wish that I could have been there. I would even have put shoes on, a big concession for this country girl! Once again, you did it!
