Ferns delicious High Tea Tower - filled with treats - delivered to your door on the Bellarine peninsula

If you happen to be on the Bellarine Peninsula, you can have a luxury High Tea tiered stand, filled with decadent treats, delivered right to your door or to Mum's house for Mother's day.

Beautifully presented in a luxury display you can choose the towered stand filled with sweet treats on its own or add a special box of luxury chocolates as a gorgeous gift.

Fern has studied cooking and chocolate art at Savour Chocolate & Patisserie School and brings her amazingly talented culinary skills into your home with these beautiful selections.
Sometimes it's not only the treats on the tower that you get to enjoy; with the tower being made out of gingerbread - you even get to eat the display stand.

Some of the indulgent treats you might find on your display stand May include:
Citrus meringue tart
Calvados and apple choux bun
Salted caramel eclair
Pink champagne cupcake
Strawberry shortcake macaron
Raspberry mousse
Marzipan fruit

High tea for one, two, three or more is all available.

Mini High Tea for 1 is $25, $35 with a box of golden hearts
High Tea for two: $40 or $50 including a box of Belgian hearts chocolate.

With the profits from the Mother's Day High Tea, Fern is hoping to raise $1000 for the Biggest Morning tea on the 28th of May.

She also offers catering for high tea for events and celebrations.

If mulled wine is your thing look no further, this can be hand-delivered to you in a ready to warm cask.

Previously running Bar Clara, the owners wanted to make sure that their business stayed intact after lockdown. Well, social isolation rules were followed and more importantly, their customers were still able to get their hit of mulled wine.

If the thought of a luxury mulled wine tickles your fancy on a Saturday night (or any other night for that matter or even the day; hey, we're not judging) then click HERE for more information.

Bar Clara promises to do their best to create a sense of intimacy and warmth in your shopping experience.

As an in-person bar, their goal is to bring you cocktails you may never have tried before. A best-selling favourite is the Banoffee Special - a clarified banana whisky sour topped with toasted meringue, served with grandma's travel collection spoons. However, like so many other businesses due to COVID-19 restrictions, they have been closed temporarily.

As we head into the winter season in isolation, Bar Clara's mission is to make you feel indulged in your own home, perhaps on cold night cosy up on the couch with a warm glass of their mulled wine.
As one of their best sellers, mulled wine is Bar Clara's yearly winter special. Preparing huge batches, they were due to release it to their customers 1 week after the shutdown began.

Their customers love it so much they created it in 1.5-litre bags to make it even more economical at only $3 80 per serve.

Many people love mulled wine, but if you are one that has never tried it, it is quite simple to prepare. All you need to do is warm on a stovetop or place it in the microwave for 40-60sec. Some people like to serve it with a wedge of orange.

Bar Clara promises "Scarlet & Clove Mulled Wine is a hug in a mug. Australian red wine, rich sugar, spices, and orange notes deliciously combine to warm you up from the inside out. In complicated times, make space for simple pleasures."

Each bag of mulled wine costs $38 with free delivery all over Melbourne metro areas and delivered within 2-3 business days.

If you get in really quickly, for Mother's Day, Bar Clara has partnered up with Dessert Parlour to deliver a selection of desserts, flowers and mulled wine for $110 delivered for free all over Melbourne metro on Mother's Day weekend. Imagine the delight on Mum's face. All orders can be placed HERE or
