OMG!!! Such a gorgeous dessert Pavithra, absolutely brilliant presentation, love the cups you've used! And I LOVE citrus, this is perfect!

I'm wondering whether the heavy cream curdled because of lemon, because the posset looks nice n creamy, not crumbly.
Beautiful presentation & pictures, seeing a new style of photography in each post :)
