I was very disappointed when I realised I'd missed the package arriving on Friday,but it turned out for the best - it meant I got to have some during my afternoon off today.
As soon as the box arrived I ripped it open to have a look - it took a lot of will power not to get stuck in straight away - it being lunchtime when the package arrived. I'd mentioned on our email correspondence that we'd be away soon during my birthday week, so the note was a lovely gesture too. The tart was packaged very well, plenty of protection to ensure the tart arrived in one piece!
I had a huge slab with a cup of tea mid afternoon, and very naughtily had another piece after Daisy had gone to bed - in my defense I wasn't sure how much longer it would last...... any excuse....
So what was it like? Well - delicious. Gooey centre, delicate pastry, treacle sticky loveliness at it's finest. I haven't yet tried something from Betty's that I didn't enjoy.
I'm looking forward to finding an excuse to go back for another afternoon tea (we went for my 30th birthday when I was too heavily pregnant to do anything else). Of course next time I'll be selecting the champage option!
Me, outside Betty's 26.9.12 - 3.5 stones heavier than now!
A huge thank you to Kelly for organising my lovely treat - it was much appreciated!
