Back in January when my BFF from cold country came down to cottage paradise, we spent a day at the Tea house. This is how the "high tea" was presented. Isn't it just lovely?
And if you look very closely, you will see the bottom layer has all the little desserts. But look a little closer. You can see that on the dessert layer are these dainty little demitasse cups. Do you know what was in these delicate little cups?
They were layered with cake, cut up strawberries and whipped topping. A Strawberry Shortcake ala tea room! So delicious, and so creative. Who would have thought to serve strawberry shortcake in these precious little cups? So if you have any little cups just hanging around, even if the saucers are long gone, make up a batch of cake, add some sliced strawberries and top it off with whipping cream. You will be the hostess with the mostess by serving these little gems at your next tea party or quilting bee.
Have a Happy quilting weekend!
