Our two favourite things in the world are pretty much clothes and cakes so when we laid eyes on The Berkley Hotel's SS10 Pret a Portea, we could hardly control ourselves. Inspired by the SS10 collections, this really is the ultimate in stylish afternoon tea.  

Sip infusions like lapsang souchong, pear caramel and wild blossom and berries from fine Paul Smith china; nibble elegant canapés and sandwiches in luxurious surroundings; then sample the pièce de résistance - a collection of impossibly cute cakes and fancies, lovingly made in the shapes of all our favourite catwalk clobber.

There’s the Erdem dark silky chocolate cake filled with passion fruit and delicate lace, the Christopher Kane pale pink almond macaroon, this season’s must-have Chanel clog biscuit with chocolate brown studs … IMG_9034a 

We could go on but we’re salivating too much! It’s available daily from 1-6pm in the caramel room and is possibly our perfect afternoon out.
