Fireworks!!!!!! #Oooh #Ahhhh

Last night was the Virgin Money fireworks display to signify the end of the the International festival here in Edinburgh. And it always a spectacular show and this year was no exception,  we really are so lucky as residents in Edinburgh to have so much going on around us xx I hear that this year involved 400,000 fireworks!! Wow x

So I thought it was a perfect opportunity for me to play with my camera and learn a new skill. I filled my little flask with some Lapsang Souchong and packed it in my backpack along with  a couple of slices of cake, oh and my camera and headed up to the Meadows area in the city to a site that I had sussed out would be perfect earlier in the week and set myself up for a an hour of oohing and ahhing.  And here are a few of the shots I got xx

This Saturday was a day of glamour and self indulgence for me with an extremely lavish trip to the pop up Champagne bar hosted in the Signet Library just off the royal mile in the centre of Edinburgh x The Pommery champagne cafe bar have created a very sophisticated and decadent little space in the Library for those looking for a bit of luxury during the Festival and I revelled in the opportunity to get dressed up and head out in to town in my finery and I felt perfectly at home in my surroundings and company.

We were there to partake in one of their Champagne afternoon teas and had been extremely well organised  by the very busy Alison on behalf of The Edinburgh Bakers to enjoy as a group during this years festival. And it was a glorious afternoon of laughter, CAKE, tea and  of course Champers and lived up to all of my expectations.

Firstly they brought us these pretty little glasses of Fizz, which tasted divine, I could certainly get used to Champagne on a regular basis I think 🙂 x

Then our sandwiches arrived, I think my favoured bready delight was the cucumber and mint sandwiches funnily enough, not a combination I can say that I have ever tried before, but they were closely followed by the cheese scones of yumminess x

And then there was CAKE!!!!!! And they all lived up to the very high standards that we as Edinburgh Bakers have come to expect in a quality cake, the chocolate brownies were absolutely sensational!!! But my favourite by far of all these goodies was the little lemon possets………..mmmmmmmm…….It was just so creamy and…….Well……lemony!!

So all in all a huge thumbs up from Lucy!!! The surroundings were just so pretty and ornate that it just set the scene for our enjoyable Afternoon tea and allowed us to have some great fun with all the other lovely people in our company x Thanks again for organising Edinburgh bakers, you excelled yourself again x I can’t wait for the next Event at Cafe Musa to see you all again x
