To mark the opening of the all-new, enchanting Fairy Trail at The Johnstown Estate, our superbly talented, pastry-chef Weduge Fernando has created a spellbinding playground for fairies - on a cake stand.

 Set on a bed of green pistachio sponge with a generous sprinkling of pixie dust, this limited-edition Afternoon Tea is accented by tiny green macaron toadstools, meringues in the shape of the Fly Agaric mushroom (that’s white-dotted, red-capped mushrooms to you and me) and tiny pixie logs made from brandy-snap cannoli, filled with chocolate cream and sprinkled with pistachio crumbs.

 Feast on delicate pastries fit for a puckish princess including fairy-winged Queen cakes, a fairy door cookie, an elfin Black Forest meringue, and a forest fruit tartlet - all sprinkled with popping candy and fairy dust.  Multi-coloured cake pops and chocolate mousse shots complete this confection of fairy perfection.

 This gorgeous creation is available until the end of November only, and the whole experience costs just €50 for two.  The best bit: Little fairy-hunters enjoy a smoothie and an extra cake pop for free.

 So, make an afternoon of it, pull on a pair of our complimentary Dubarry boots and stride out to the Fairy Trail, get some fresh air on our 120-acre estate, have fun with your little ones, then reward yourselves with this original and fun Afternoon Tea experience.
