So I had to order a cheesecake or two, and while I was at it a random choice of sweets as I needed a sweet tooth fix tonight.

The sweets

 Reece’s Belgian Waffle

I have only recently found out that I am not allergic to peanuts, and now have a wee addiction to anything Reece’s so when I saw this I had to order it.

On opening the packaging the smell was soo good, and visually mmm so much so my mouth started to water.

Regular Oreo Cookie Sundee

Another fav of mine are Oreo’s and when I saw they did this, I had to place an order and see what it was like.

I dug right into this as soon as I took the photo, the crunchiness of the Oreo’s, the ice-cream, the sauces mmmmm a perfect combo.

Terry’s Orange Cookie Dough

Two of my favs coming together, Terrys orange and cookie dough surely this couldnt fail?

I could have had many many many more servings of this, as it was just so so good.

I will be getting this again soon!!

Churros with Chocolate Sauce

This always reminds me of going to a Christmas market, as this is something I tend to get as the smell always pulls me in.

These were just as you would expect, slightly crunchy, sugary, soft centre and very mmm

Regular Bounty Milkshake

I saw this and thought why not, lets see what its like.

I love bounty bars, so I thought this should be just like them?

I was a little disappointed as it didn’t have a great Bounty flavour, just a subtle one but it was still nice.

Chocolate Fudge Cake

I have not had chocolate fudge cake in ages, I dont know why as there was a period where this is all I would get.

This nice and warm with cream was so good, and I remembered why I loved getting this so much.

Strawberry Cheesecake

I had to order a cheesecake so I did and this is what I got.

You cant go wrong with a strawberry cheesecake, thats all I can say as its just so nice 🙂

The MB Fairy – Treat Box (Glasgow) : Review


I got gifted a box previously from The MB Fairy, and said I would order again….and I did. This time I said to surprise me as everything looked good, and I couldn’t make my mind up.

If you check out her instagram page @thembfairy you will see how good everything looks.⠀

Treat Box Contents

Now it was tasting time 🙂

Old School Cake

Cast your mind back to high school and the cakes you used to get there, this is exactly that but 100% much nicer.

I purchased a box of treats from @thembfairy as previously I got gifted some, and they were very good so I had to get more.

As I said this was just like the old school cake, but it was much nicer and super moreish!!!

Mars Bar Cake

Next from my treat box to try was the Mars Bar Cake, this looked good and I am a big fan of Mar Bars.

I cut these up and took a bite and instantly mmm I could taste the chocolate, the mars bar and the crispys…..this was a perfect bite and before I knew it the portion was finished.

This was a solid 5/5 for me⠀

Crunchie Tiffin

Next from my treat box to try was the Crunchie Tiffin , this looked good I couldn’t wait to dig in.

I took a big bite of this and I loved the texture, flavour and again wow so good. I think the flavour and texture is what made this really good to eat mmm

I could have easily had more and more of this one.⠀

Millionaires Shortbread

I am mega fussy when it comes to any kind of shortbread, caramel or millionaires etc etc why? I have always found that there is either too much base or too much topping and not enough of the middle part.

As you can see from the photos this had a good-sized middle and a nice balanced base and top, now it was time to taste.

Perfection! Everything worked really well and had a really yummy flavour! Now, this is how you make these!

A solid 5/5

Maltesers Brownie

And there’s more….⠀

This was a great selection I got from @thembfairy and now it was time to taste the Malteser Brownie.⠀

As you can see from the photos these looked really good, then again everything I got looked and tasted good so now time to dig in.⠀

This was very nice, its exactly as how you would expect it to taste and like the others mega moreish.⠀

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of these amazing sweet treats.

This really hit my sweet tooth more than once, and was amazing from first bite to the very last crumb.

If you liked what you saw, or have a sweet tooth like me then head on over to the MB Fairys instagram page @thembfairy and send her a message for an order or two.

Dads Birthday Afternoon Tea at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel (Edinburgh) : Review

Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh
Princes Street
Edinburgh, EH1 2AB

V: 5th September 2020


Wanted to post this a while ago, but had a few priority things to post so finally here it is.

The past week I have had bad news followed by more bad news, and this same week it was my dads birthday….just all bad timing.

We booked this ages ago, as the last time we were here we loved it and thought my dad would like it to….and we couldn’t wait to go back.

The afternoon tea was served in “Peacock Alley” which has a great atmosphere for Afternoon Tea, catchups or even private meetings.

Menu

To save me typing it up, here is the pic

How good does this sound? just reading it made my mouth water.

The Afternoon Tea

As you saw from the above photo, it sounded amazing! and we all couldnt wait till it came out.

As you can see the presentation was really good.

The food from start to finish was perfect! it was the perfect amount and everything was very very tasty.

The best part which I really love is they gave clotted cream with the scones, this is the only way scones jam and cream should be served……top marks here!!!!

  • Presentation : 5
  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Visit Overall :

Another amazing visit, and my dad really enjoyed it.

I cant fault this in anyway, everything was fresh tasty and the whole time spent there was so relaxing.

The staff were very helpful, friendly and attentive.

If you havent tried here for Afternoon Tea, you have to check it out as I promise you that you wont be disappointed.
