A List Maker's Life: Easy Tea Party Cakes

Easy Tea Party Cakes

In planning for last week's princess tea party I had it in mind to make cupcakes with small crown toppers.  However, after picking out the perfect tea party dishes I realized a full size cupcake would be the only thing to fit on the little ladies' dainty {that's the fancy word for delicately charming} plates.  So, we went on a grocery aisle search for a sweet alternative. 

With a little scoping Anne Hope and I found just the right ingredients for our own version of petits fours glacés{that's the fancy word for bite size, iced confections served as desserts}. 

The Shopping List

~Oreo Cakesters {we used the yellow cake version in the 100 Calorie Pack size}
~White chocolate melting candy
~Icings & Decorations

The To-Dos

~Melt down the white chocolate in a double boiler over medium-low heat {if the water touches the bottom of the top boil pan and/or boils, the chocolate burns quickly}
~While you're waiting, unwrap the mini cakes and lay them out on wax paper
~Dip one Cakester at a time
~Spoon around in chocolate to fully cover
~Fish out {completely un-fancy word there, 'huh?}with a spoon and tap on the side of the bowl until covered smoothly
~Leave to cool on wax paper
~Once cool, decorate petits fours with icings and more.

Appréciez!
{that's the fancy word for Enjoy}

  1. They came out so cute, Katie! I hated the petit fours I made for last year's Mother's Day tea, they tasted just awful. Those are so sweet and dainty I think if we do it again those will make the menu.
