Cake in Latvia

In my previous post I wrote about my visit to Riga in Latvia.
I remember one evening, just after a magnificent organ
concert in the cathedral, we went out for tea and cake.
The cakes tasted as good as they looked, and I thought
they were so prettily arranged on the blue and white china.
In the bottom picture you can see a glass of the famous
local liqueur, Balsam, which is drunk frequently.
