It all looks delicious but I must say that tropical fruit salad and the lavender violet cupcakes look extraordinary! Jen

Gosh, earl grey lychee tarts, jasmine tea tarts with lychee, lavender blueberry violet cup cakes: you've got me salivating on my keyboard (even when I've just wolfed down a meal). Just wonderful, what a treat. The tropical tea party couldn't go wrong after this, I bet. Thanks for sharing.
