Though there is a slight tart after taste due to the usage of grapefruit, blood orange and apricot in the cake in parts, the subtle & graceful flavor of French roses and the earl grey tea lift the cake to a long finish with waves of flavors rolling in. The textures, the taste, finish and the flavors of Saveurs De Printemps transported me to another idyllic world where everything else can wait. Indeed another triumph for Mad About Sucre!
