    SMWS Notes: 

    A fresh, bright and summery scent filled the room, cupcakes in white fondant icing and topped with a cherry, sparkling strawberry lemonade and a tropical fruit punch iced tea brought a smile to our faces and that smile never left us. Wonderfully sweet on the palate neat, like a vanilla cream filled brioche (Saint-Tropez tart) balanced by the sweet and tangy spiciness of a tamarind date chutney - most unusual but it worked! Diluted the scent of freshly made lemon filled doughnuts and salt & vinegar crackers turned it equally moreish and tempting. The taste was now sweet and slightly perfumed as well as herbal like a ginger lemon mint tisane.
