Sweet Moments Candybar

I love whimsical weddings and I have a soft spot for Candybars after the amazing experience I had at my own wedding. I didn’t really get to enjoy the full glory of my wedding Candybar, as you can well imagine that I was everywhere but at the Candybar entertaining my wedding guests! The Candybar goodies were completely wiped out by the time the wedding ended, and I was quite regretful that I did not even manage to save a single morsel to reminisce. Only pictures remind me of the wonderful array we had that day.

So when I heard that my good friend was going to have a Candybar catered by Sweet Moments for his wedding at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport, I was overjoyed. Apparently he took inspiration from my wedding, woo hoo! Pay back time Mister! I was going to take the opportunity to raid his candy bar and enjoy it to the fullest!

My friend had a whopping 14 different varieties of candy, chocolates and marshmallows! This was in addition to the chocolate fountain as well as strawberries too! What a feast! As you can see, my friend chose a very pink theme!

Sourballs – Grapefruit & Watermelon

No matter whether young or old, candy bars will never fail to put a smile on anyone’s face! I really do think that candy bars will become the de rigeur for all weddings in the future, just like champagne pouring or having a wedding cake! Remember you heard it here first!

Rose Veranda at Shangri-La (Sweets!)

This is a continuation of my recent visit to the Rose Veranda at Shangri-La. See http://365days2play.com/2011/12/19/rose-veranda-at-shangri-la-savouries/ for the write-up on the savoury afternoon tea items.

Shangri La Rose Veranda - Scones with Whipped Cream and Jam

The hallmark of a good afternoon tea service is good scones. The scones at Shangri-La passed the taste test. Slightly crisp and brown on the tops, yet buttery and flaky on the inside. To me, a scone can only be 100% perfect if it is served with clotted cream. Normal cream is served here unfortunately. It’s amazing that not many people know about clotted cream, but really, you’d never look back after you’ve tasted a scone with clotted cream and jam.

These were not available on the normal buffet and were instead served to all the guests present. Refreshing strawberry and rose sorbet with a jelly like substance on the side. A nice breakaway from the heavier items and they look pretty too!

Some cake also served individually to the guests.

Shangri La Rose Veranda - Chocolate Fountain

Chocolate fountain with lots of fruits and other items to dip. You could even dip the chocolate balls in more chocolate.

Shangri La Rose Veranda - Creme Brulee

Creme Brulee – Loved the creamy insides. Burnt sugar top was just a little bit too thick which made the creme brulee too sweet.
