Lavender Blueberry Ice Cream
-for people who like Yardley of London. I'm really not kidding. That's not necessarily bad, I have wonderful childhood memories associated with getting hand-milled bars of soap for my birthday each year-but I must warn you that this ice cream has a very assertive fragrance. If you're sensitive to strong, floral smells you might want to pass on this, or at least use half of the amount of lavender.

It was only after I took the photos and cropped, etc. that I noticed the original post also had this displayed in a teacup. I wonder if subconsciously it was so strongly scented like Earl Grey that both our minds immediately thought, "Teacup." Of course, tea cups are a great way to photograph ice cream too-but I really think it is the scent.
I can't imagine sitting down and eating a gigantic bowl of this, but with a nice wedge of lemon pound cake I could see it being really nice.
