I love Christmas as much as I love gatherings. Last Christmas we had the mightiest cook out and of course, store bought pastries to end the meal. I miss christmas too much to let this entry go in 2012. :P
Party Set, $32
Coffeebean has hardly disappointed in the numerous times that I have opted for takeaway sets. The set consisted of Christmas stolen, raspberry crumble, chocolate mint cup and brownie which elicited a number of oohs and aahs. Until we sunk our teeth into these dessert morsels, all was silent. Totally disappointing with dry and hard dessert bites. I wish that neither was portioned so big to be honest. The previous good impression washed down the drain because Coffeebean has seen way better days.
These chocolate looking gingerbread men were crumbly and very soft.
Thankfully this still tasted the same! It is a pity that neither had a ginger aftertaste like my favourite ginger bread cookies have. There are moments where I question if these are Mooncake cookies in disguise read: piglets eaten during mid autumn.
And as the year starts with christmas ending, I hope every one is sober enough to realise it's a spankin' new year ahead!
