It’s that very special time of the year again…. April 1st, my birthday.
This year I was determined to go all out. With the help of a friend we planned a Girls Only Tea Party at the very beautiful Rose House. The theme was hats and dresses. The weather was warm and sunny so the dresses really worked well. Hats?…. if anyone knows me… I love hats and wear them quite often. Though I only have a few, people think I have a ton!
So with HATS, TEA and DRESSES in mind – it was a must that my cake design included them all. The cake was carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, covered in fondant. HATS: the hat on top of the cake was similar to the hat I wore – straw hat with purple/pink flowers on one side. TEA: It was only suiting that for a tea party the cake should don a tea cup too. The flowers on the tea cup were colored to match the dress I wore. One of my favorite teas is Twinings Earl Gray, so that was what was in the tea cup!! DRESSES: I wore a white silk gown with a rather bright floral print – so I matched the orange letters and pink band on the cake to colors on my dress.
The results… amazing, many girls came out adorned in hats of every style and shape imaginable. I loved all their dresses and the tea was absolutely magnificent.
