I love tea. And cake. And I love having a guilt-free excuse to consume both. Recently, my friend Lauren and I were invited to sample high tea at Rydges Kalgoorlie as part of their Cancer Council Pink Ribbon fundraiser. All this week (Monday to Friday 2-5pm) you can go along and have high tea and support breast cancer research at the same time.
First things first: tea. We plumped for English Breakfast. Classic.
Shortly after tea arrived so too did a towering stand of treats so tall it completely obscured my dining partner.
From the bottom:
We wasted no time getting stuck in. Unless you consider photographing food a waste of time, which I don’t 😉
It’s a tough call, but I think the brownie was my favourite. You really can’t beat a good chocolate brownie.
The orange cake packed a real punch and was deliciously moist.
I was too stuffed to eat my cupcake, but I did pose for a photo with one.
I had every intention of eating it later but it didn’t survive the car trip unfortunately. Not the first cupcake to come to grief in a car under my guidance I can tell you.
It was a lovely afternoon and something different to do in Kalgoorlie, which isn’t famous for serving tea, high or otherwise. The only thing that could have made it better was perhaps a glass of sparkling. But seeing as I’m typing this poolside in Bali, that could just be the third mojito speaking. It costs a very reasonable $25 so if high tea tickles your fancy give Rydges a call to book 9080 0800.
