Well February just flew by with some beautiful baby showers, bridal parties, birthdays and other celebrations. I feel well and truly settled in the kitchen and have enjoyed trying out some new menu ideas.
February Event Wrap Up
The first Tea and Tarot morning / afternoon tea was a great success with Dawn Alice with rave reviews so we have put up the next date to be Thursday 19th March, starting at 10am. There are 3 readings booked per hour so your cream tea booking times are spaced to accommodate the reading times.
Our first Make and Take craft afternoon was very informative and fun for those that attended, however due to a calamity of plumbing disasters, illness and unexpected other commitments, the numbers were very low. In view of this, prepayment for the craft portion of the day is required to confirm your booking. We are looking at the next date to be in the Easter school holidays - bring the children or grandchildren (ages 6 and up). They'll learn a new skill and get to take home their handiwork.
New products and menu options
The chocolate eclairs have well and truly been a hit in the Deluxe Tea menu, so they are here to stay. They can be adapted with a custard filling, have a vanilla icing instead of chocolate. I haven't perfected the gluten free version yet.
Which brings me to dietary intolerances and menu choices. I have just added a menu option that will cater for the main concerns of gluten gree and lactose free choices and this can be refined further for individual needs. Please do note that I am not a nutritionist or food specialist and can only follow recipe recommendations, however if you know specific foods that you can or cannot eat, I can work around or with them. Some specialist items may incur an additional cost.
Are you having a celebration in the workplace or need cakes for a school /daycare birthday? Order your cakes with Devon Pixies and save the day. Large cupcakes are 6 for $12 and come in chocolate mud, vanilla sponge or red velvet and are decorated with buttercream in the colour of your choice. Mini cupcakes are 12 for $15 and come in the same flavour selections as the large cupcakes. Orders are to be paid at time of booking, 24 hours notice required and ready for pick up from Devon Pixies on the day from 9am. All ingredients will be listed on the box (especially for school / daycare orders).
We are welcoming Dawn Alice back on the 19th of March for Tea and Tarot, cost is $25 per person and includes your cream tea and a private 15 minute reading. Bookings are essential to coordinate readings.
A Downton Afternoon Tea is being held on Saturday 28th March at 3pm. We are very excited to announce The Brisbane Classics Club will be performing a musical repertoire of the era for your enjoyment. Bookings are essential and are available via Eventbrite. Seats are limited to 40, so don't leave it to the last minute to book.

Leaving a review?
Please do - there are options on the Facebook page to write a review (use the review tab), I also have a link to Trip Advisor on the webpage (and here). You can also email me with any comments and questions.
Group booking and refund policy - I love to look after all groups but I do ask that groups and parties prepay three days prior to arrival. I can process your payments via credit card or provide bank transfer details. I ask for this to ensure your confirmed numbers and I also believe that it makes it much easier on the day for you as guests, as you can relax and enjoy the party.
I will provide full refunds for any cancellations up to 48 hours prior to arrival, 50% refund within 24 hours up to the day of. Any cancellation on the day of the event forfeit any refunds. This refund policy also applies to special diary events.
