Cupcake Tea at the NYC Ritz-Carlton

Cupcakes Take the Cake took on the Cupcake Tea at the Ritz-Carlton and it was lovely.

I'll leave it for Nichelle, Rachel, and intern Melissa to give their opinions on the tea, as I wasn't feeling my best, but I will share the pictures of the yumminess with you guys.




Cupcake Tea at the Ritz



Here's intern Melissa, Suzet (our sweet server), Nichelle, and Rachel.





The tea included five mini-cupcakes:

Sicilian Pistachio and Almond, Coconut Cream, Valrhona Chocolate, Strawberry Shortcake, and Red Velvet.

The Strawberry Shortcake (bisected):

and intact:

This was my favorite flavor, mostly because it wasn't too sweet and the strawberry was pronounced. I favor fruit-flavor desserts over chocolate.

The tea is at 50 Central Park South and I believe it costs $25 per person. There's also a holiday cupcake tea coming up, from November 27, 2009 to January 3, 2010, and will feature:

Rudolph's Red Velvet, "The Big Apple," Santa's S'mores, The Great Pumpkin, and Holiday Candy Explosion. And tea, of course, as well as hot chocolate and/or milk. All for $28.


Keep your eyes peeled for Rachel, Nichelle, and Melissa's thoughts about the tea and cupcakes.
