I am so excited to share a Tea Party with other bloggers. Please feel free to link up your recipe, craft or fun inspiration and join our Tea Party!
The party goes all week ~ tell your friends!
I have to take a minute to thank my May Teapot Swap Partner, Melanie from Artful Interludes for the amazing teapot she sent me along with other goodies. You can see the teapot below...it is so wonderful.
She also spoiled me with other goodies such as homemade decorative sugars, a lovely tea towel, a faux cupcake and spoon.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I was so excited to purchase some miniature clay "sweets" from her etsy shop and now Sophia and I get to wear some sweets around our necks everyday!
Another BIG THANK YOU goes out to one of the BEST tea blogs I have stumbled upon and frequent almost daily....Angela from Tea with Friends .
I won her Scripture Tea Giveaway and I am very grateful and excited.
Now...let's share some tea and sweets!
For Tea Time Tuesday this week and in honor of the these wonderful ladies and our new Tea Party link up I will be serving you lovely ladies my version of Strawberry Baby Cakes with Rose Tea Infused Mousse.
Does anyone remember seeing these on the cover of Tea Time?
And I cut it out with a scalloped round cutter.
The rest is true to the original recipe. This was my first time making mousse AND using a candy thermometer!!
To be honest I didn't wait as long as I should have before I stacked up the cakes for the picture you see here......I was so excited. However, after the mousse sat in the refrigerator for about 4 hours total it was perfect consistency.
The rose tea I used for the mousse infusion was Tazo Rest Herbal Infusion ~ it is a white tea with rose petals and has a lovely flavor. The Rose Water I purchased from a local grocery store but I often see it at William Sonoma as well.
