Safari Supper for Sunderland Restaurant Week [ad]

I was invited to the #EatDrinkSunderland Safari Supper to get a taste of what is on offer for Sunderland Restaurant Week in return for me to share my experience on my blog and social media. All views in this post are my own.
It's already half way through March and I've just been so terrible at keeping my blog up to date! I decided to extend my hiatus after getting caught up in a car accident last month (thankfully aside from some whiplash I'm fine!) as I needed to make sure I didn't stress myself out any further. I feel like I'm back on track now though and I'm really excited to be posting again as I've got loads on this year! This post will actually be quite a long one, and my photos have actually ended up being terrible so please bear with me! Hopefully you get the gist of it, but I'm a bit rusty and I was a bag of nerves most of the night!
I was so lucky to be given the chance to attend the #EatDrinkSunderland Safari Supper to get a taste of just som…

Fentimans Pop Up Gin Bakery*

I think it's fair to say, based on my instagram and my Afternoon Tea Adventures posts, I'm a huge fan of cake! I've only just joined the Gin hype, and I'm fully loving it! I've realised it was never the gin I didn't like, it was only the tonic! Instead, I like to mix my gin with some mixers full of flavour that compliments the gin, and I think we can all agree that Fentimans are exactly that!

Well, they've only gone and found another perfect mix for Gin - cake! The other weekend, they opened up the first ever pop up Gin bakery in Notting Hill, opened by GBBO winner Sophie Faldo no less. You can see their promo video here:

Now I know what you're thinking, why am I sharing a post about an event that's already happened? Well the G&T cake fun doesn't stop here! Fentimans have put together some cake recipes so you can make your own G&T cakes to go with your weekend tipple (or your midweek, who's judging?). I think I'm going to have to try the Gin and Rose Lemonade Ombre Cake, I absolutely adore their Rose Lemonade, it always makes me feel extra fancy drinking it when they come in those lovely bottles!

Fingers crossed this pop up bakery pops up again soon so I can give these cakes a try! They just look delicious, and I just know a G&T would wash these down perfectly. Honestly I've never thought of baking with alcohol but the sound of all these cakes has me so intrigued! I think I might need to give one a try, and then I'll share my work with you all! TheGin and Valencian Orange Tonic Chocolate Tart would be lovely for a Christmas party! We're honestly spoiled for choice here!

You can find Fentimans on Twitter and Instagram, where you can find some lovely inspo for your next Gin! These would just be perfect for a party with your friends or family! Let me know if you try any of the recipes out too, I can't wait to try them myself!
