The beauty brand has teamed up with Balthazar in Covent Garden to create the bookable teatime series, which will be available to sample until 29 September.

The traditional cakes have been replaced by confections modelled on the most popular products from the Bobbi Brown range. These include a chocolate and blackberry Sachertorte in the shape of the Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, redcurrant and lemon posset macarons that form the Pot Rouge For Lips & Cheeks, and shortbread cake made with mango and passion fruit consommé to represent the Skin Foundation Stick.

Guests can also sample the specially-made drink dubbed ‘Bobbi’s Party Cocktail’, as well as a selection of sandwiches and scones.

The menu on offer has been created by Balthazar’s head pastry chef, Regis Beauregard. He said: "To have the opportunity to be so experimental in the kitchen is every chef’s dream. It was a very fun but extremely challenging task to take these cosmetic products and make them into something delicious whilst retaining their original beauty."

As part of the partnership, Bobbi Brown has created a limited edition lip colour called Vintage Red for Balthazar. The shade will be available to purchase exclusively around the corner from Balthazar at the Bobbi Brown Covent Garden Studio.

Last year saw designer Matthew Williamson collaborate with Balthazar on a similar experience.
