Prêt-à-Portea

Your Fashionista's Tea includes

A delicate collection of cakes and fancies inspired by the world’s finest designers:

Ralph & Russo’s pretty in pink dress transformed into a wafer cone filled with pineapple and kalamansi supreme – a frozen first for Prêt-à-Portea.

Richard Quinn’s vibrant floral display comes to life as an upside down black forest gâteau topped with an edible flower.

Versace’s printed cady mini dress transformed into an exotic bavarois with a rainbow meringue and finished with a sugary tribute to one of our favourite style icons, Marilyn Monroe.

Dolce & Gabbana’s daring queen of hearts dress, now an almond sponge layered with apricot jelly, rhubarb confit and orange blossom cream crowned with a chocolate card.

Erdem’s glitzy gold and black baroque floral print dress recreated as a chocolate mousse topped with red hot sugar bow.

Ellie Saab’s pink fade dress strides out as tuile biscuit cylinder filled with raspberry crémeux and summer berry compote, accentuated with oversized red sunglasses.

Tom Ford’s hot pink stiletto steps onto the cakewalk as a chocolate biscuit iced with pink and white royal icing.

Miu Miu’s yellow swimsuit makes a splash as a vanilla flavoured biscuit.

Aruna Seth’s brilliantly British butterfly handbag makes a debut on the stand as a Victoria sponge cake with redcurrant compote.
