So you may be aware we like cake, and we like any excuse for cake, so with Josephine Moon’s book The Chocolate Promise based around a Tasmanian chocolate shop called the Chocolate Apothecary, we just couldn’t resist celebrating its forthcoming publication with a chocolate themed morning tea!
Our spread for The Tea Chest
We have form in this. As well as our annual bake-off, when Jo came to visit us we threw her a tea party in celebration of The Tea Chest, with an array of tantalising teas and tasty treats. So with a chocolate themed book, we were never going to be able to avoid the lure of some serious chocolate (over)indulgence – even if Jo wasn’t actually going to be here!
Celebrating The Chocolate Promise –
the only way we know how!
Our talented team of
bakers publishing professionals whipped up a storm, with a dizzying (that might just be the sugar rush) array of chocolate based cakes on offer.
As well as celebrating Jo’s new book, we also used the event as a fundraiser for the Big Ears Animal Sanctuary in Tasmania, it’s a charity close to Jo’s heart and based near the setting of The Chocolate Promise too.
