Birthday desserts

I had the most wonderful, sugar-filled birthday last week.

The Boy and I had lunch at Miss Marple's Tea Room in Sassafras. I'd heard much praise for it from friends, so it was time to give it a whirl. Especially when their website held images of desserts that looked like this:

While we didn't have the sundae pictured above, we saw plenty being delivered to the tables and they looked exactly as pictured. Delicious!

Instead we went for Belgian waffles and 'Vicar's Folly'. You'll have to wait a little for pictures, but for now this description of the Vicar's Folly from their menu should wet your appetite.

A delicious congregation of butterscotch ice-cream, honeycomb pieces, chocolate, whipped cream and caramel fudge. A sundae that is definitely "heaven sent!"

Following such a wallowing, we snooped about a wonderful store called 'Tea Leaves', right next to Miss Marples. Miss Marples has a lovely collection of teapots which excited me, but the teapots in Tea Leaves was even more magnificent! Plus a million and one different types of teas to sniff!

We left with a Strawberry and Champagne flavoured tea and a minute teapot that reminds me of Miss Marples Tea House. A nice little souvenir :) We haven't tried it yet, but it smells delicious and can only mean good things!

After heading home and having a short food nap, the eating continued with a family roast pork and an oversized ice cream cake:

Deliciously deadly.
