William Curley's couture cakes

Tea time just got a lot more fashionable

Food and fashion are two of our favourite things, and so too are they the current preoccupation of renowned pâtissier and chocolatier William Curley.

Celebrating the opening of the Victoria and Albert Museum's new Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950 exhibition, William Curley has created a selection of delightful new indulgences. Entitled Belle of the Ball, the couture cakes are inspired by some of the biggest names in British fashion - from a decadent dark chocolate mousse inspired by Giles Deacon, to a fruity apricot and cassis concoction in the style of Erdem.

Available exclusively at Harrods, book in for a sumptuous Belle of the Ball Afternoon Tea in the Tea Room (£39 per person including a ticket to the V&A's Ballgowns exhibition), or pick up Curley's edible art works in the luxury department store's food hall.

To get your tastebuds going, check out the delicious Belle of the Ball range below...
