We don’t venture out to Fraser Valley often, so when I had to take Mama Lam out to Langley for some wedding related activities, I decided to find some eats there. A deal voucher led us to having afternoon tea at Frosting Cupcakery.
As with other afternoon tea experiences, we started with selecting a tea of our choice. They have a decent sized list, but unfortunately they were basic tea selection and were not very interesting. That being said, they have a really nice collection of tea pots. The two that we got, despite both being white in colour, were of different designs. They had simple, monotone design that reminded you of a bird nest and seashells.
When the tower arrived, we were quite surprised. One, it seemed like there was a lot of food; two, it’s not two of each kind. For savoury items they provided two of the same, but for the cupcakes, they actually gave us four different flavours — I thought that’s neat, so you could try more varieties, but the downside was, we had to split every cupcake so we could try all the flavours.
Here is the list of items on the tower:
- Veggie and ranch dip – simple, but a healthy addition to the tower
- Broccoli cheese quiche – fresh out of the oven, which was nice; the crust was pretty buttery but the filling had a strong, kind of “fishy” broccoli taste
- Egg salad sandwich – standard affair
- Ham and cheese sandwich – standard affair
- Croissant – this was also freshly made; buttery, flaky but a bit crumbly
- Cucumber cream cheese wrap – the cream cheese added savouriness and creaminess to the blank canvass otherwise called cucumber
- Chocolate snowball cupcake – a good mix of chocolate and coconut; if you like shredded coconut, you’ll enjoy this one
- Chocolate cupcake – rich and decadent; my favourite cupcake of the bunch
- Cookies and cream cupcake – this was pretty good too, with prominent Oreo flavours
- “Boo” vanilla cupcake – this is their regular vanilla cupcake but made it “boo” because it’s Halloween month
- Blueberry scones, served with jam, butter and Devonshire cream – this was not bad; a bit dense but loads of blueberries in the scone
As you can see, there’s a lot of food. At one point our server asked if we needed a box, we politely declined the offer. haha yes, we did finish everything on the tower, and we did surprise our server. Apparently most people end up leaving with a few things in the box. We did well!
When we first arrived, we saw that a table was nicely decorated and reserved for us. Throughout the service, our server came by every so often to check on us and refill our teapots with hot water. Our server was nice and friendly, too. Even though we used a deal voucher, our server didn’t discriminate and overall I thought we received very good service.
High tea at Frosting Cupcakery is $16.95 per person and considering it’s in Langley and the amount of food we received, I thought it was a decent deal. Of course, it’s an even better deal for us because it was 50% off. If you live in the area, I thought it’s worth a try.
