A for Apple, Tea for Treats

Some girlfriends and I were invited to a tea party hosted by AS. We were in a tent (it was very sunny today!) drinking tea and eating sweets at her fiancĂ©’s backyard. It was my first tea party and it was exactly how I have imagined when I was younger: pretty dresses, sweet treats, yummy snacks, and good friends. Since it was my first tea party, I baked a lemon cake with creamy lemon filling! It was a good time to take out my cake decorating kit that was left aside for some time :P

The night before the tea party:

I need a bigger kitchen


Hello Kitty oven mits :)

Swirled Flowers
Wilton Tips: Drop Flower 2D, Round 5 for center, Star 21 for shell border

Tea time:

Lemon cake with lemon filling and pink vanilla buttercream icing

AS' tea set is so pretty!

The other side of the table (MORE yummy treats!)

Left: I love Earl Grey Tea
Right: A's heart-shaped strawberries (even more delicious!)

We're silly :)

Pinkies up!

Such a fun Sunday afternoon! I drank too much tea and ate too much sugary treats...which is a perfect time to study for my final exam! ;)
