CUPCAKE TEA AT RITZ-CARLTON

The long-awaited event has occured; I attended the Cupcake Tea at Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park. And oh yeah, my friend Tricia is expecting a baby boy and had her pre-baby shower party there which is why I was around.
The Star Room is very cozy and sophisticated and our waitress was the bomb who knew how to make a mean chai tea.
We were each served five cute mini cupcakes which was way more than I felt comfortable eating. I was over stuffed, but just kept eating because that's what I do when something is delicious. The tea was good as well. I had an Afternoon Tea which was a mixture of green and black teas, but they also had some more exciting sounding options as well, like the Mad Hatters Tea Party (or something like that).
