If you’re desperate for a Willy Wonka experience but don’t have the patience to look through all those candy bars for the golden ticket, we’ve got you covered. Sydneysider Katherine Sabbath, the cake magician whose outrageously Instagrammable creations look like they came straight from a unicorn-run Wonka factory combined with a touch of fairy dust, is hosting a high tea at The Tea Salon.
Known for her wonderfully cartoon-like, candy-coloured creations, Sabbath is an up-and-coming fixture in the Australian foodie scene and has recently collaborated with big names such as Luke Mangan and Anna Polyviou. As you’d expect, her beautiful cakes have made quite a splash on Instagram.
So what better way to let this talented Sydney food artist spread her wings than constructing an entire adorable high tea? On July 16 and 17, you'll be able to get your hands on a bounty of Sabbath’s marvellous cakes, cake pops, donuts and other weird and wonderful baked treats at The Tea Salon in the CBD. She’ll also be demonstrating how to make one of her epic cakes (you know what they say about teaching someone to bake an insanely delicious pastel cake masterpiece... they’ll eat it straight away. Totally an old saying.).
But be sure to harden your heart and charge your phone camera, because Sabbath's creations look so good you'll almost (almost) not want to eat them. A spread of tea, sparkling rosé and scones will also be provided, as if you needed more reasons to attend. Here's a little taster:
Katherine Sabbath’s Exclusive High Tea is happening on Thursday, July 16 (6pm-8pm) and Friday, July 17 (10am-12pm) at The Tea Salon, corner of Pitt Street Mall and Market Street, Sydney. Tickets are $45 pp, available here.
