I wonder how many of these are pocketed each year?

I recently played ladies at the iconic Raffles Hotel in Singapore with my sister. We were in town to do some exploring and some helping [check out Films at the Fort] and were treated to an afternoon of refinement through Creative Holidays.

Having been told to don a dress and pearls, we obediently dressed up and taxied our way there. From the greeting at the door to the last morsel of food being consumed, everything was fabulous.

My favourite item was the red choux pastry piece on the top tier – it was filled with a tart mixed berry custard. And the part you don’t see here is the dim sum buffet that I also visited a few times, for research of course.

If you are in Singapore it’s a great way to spend an afternoon, but be sure to book ahead.

Top tier – berry puffs and lemon meringue tartlets

Raffles middle tier

Middle tier – orange cake, rich chocolate box and berry custard tartlets

Raffles sandwiches

Bottom tier – these sandwiches were far more tasty than they present here. Salmon, cucumber, egg and ham.

Ooh so refined…

Matching your dress and choux pastry is a skill.

      It’s definitely a ‘must do’ while in Singapore Andi, but you need to book ahead. It was a fabulous afternoon of playing ladies, so of course I had to don a lovely dress and look the part. x
