A Mad Tea Party

Today we had a tea party, a Mad Hatters Tea Party, with plenty of cake!




We made a Hummingbird cake, some mini cupcakes, cakepops, lemon macarons (with home made lemon curd filling) and some playing card jammie dodgers. A feast of fun!









Alice herself came along to see what was on offer.







Hurrry over to a Fanciful Twist to see other Mad Tea Parties taking place today.

  10. Your treats look absolutely delectable!
    Love your Alice - too cute! ;)
    I think I'll help myself to a lemon macaron - lemon has become my favorite for desserts. And homemade filling is always going to be the best.

    Mmmm! Delicious! Thank you for having me!

  16. So sorry I am late
    For this important date.
    I've finally made it down the list.

    All out of time
    I'm leaving this rhyme
    For I'm tired and I need not persist.

    All this running about
    Has left me dry in the mouth.
    Might I have a cup of tea?

    Your hummingbird cake
    and lovely tarts
    are so very tempting to me

    Oh my, the time
    It goes so fast
    I must be on my way

    But fear not friend
    I shall return
    Please……Have a beautiful day.
