The initial aromas transported the panel into an old church with its wooden pews and old leather-bound books mingling alongside perfumed incense, scented candles and the fuscia bush beside the entrance. Then sweetness filled the air with jelly beans and sherbert straws married with apricot yoghurt and sugar coated nuts. On the taste we found more spicy wood, gob stoppers and iced buns but with a fruity bridal gown of mango, mandarin, strawberry jam and blackcurrant cheesecake. Baptism unveiled flavours of stollen bread, sweetpink nougat, and the refreshing zing of gooseberries,grapefruit and raspberry coulis to finish.
