A Magical Cake and Tea Party

A few weeks ago my best friend and her housemate hosted a cake and tea party, where we paid a donation to enter the house and all proceedings were donated to charity. To name a few things they made: Victoria sponge, lemon drizzle, chocolate brownies, M & M cookies, cheese sticks and the list goes on. I'm going to let my photos do the talking, but after this evening I couldn't move or eat for days.

The savoury station: homemade cheese sticks,
salmon mousse,  mozzarella  and tomato on bruchetta
Adorable bite size cupcakes
Chocolate brownies with treacle sauce
Coffee cake pops covered in white chocolate
The table spread
We named the centre piece (green cake) "The Hulk"
Four layer chocolate and mint cake
Bite size Victoria sponge cakes

YoSushi - YoBurger

I recently read on Twitter that Yo Sushi are introducing Yo Burger, where instead of having bread buns its sushi rice patty. This is not the first time I've come across this concept, as when I was living in Melbourne I ate at a restaurant called J Cafe who have been making sushi burgers for eight years (blog link) and they made it very well. 

YoSushi's burgers will set you back £8, but it does include nori crackers, daikon slaw and misochup. I still think this is a bit pricey, like most things at YoSushi but I am intrigued to try it and compare it to the teriyaki sushi burger I tried at J Cafe. Upon looking at the photos, the only physical difference I see is that J Cafe's sushi burger has sushi nori (seaweed) holding the burger together, which makes me curious in whether the YoBurger will fall apart at your first bite.

I think YoBurgers will definitely get tongues wagging, as its a new concept in England and I look forward to hearing reviews about it.
