Tiny Treats Tea Party

Note the size of the treats compared to my hand, which is holding the child-size dessert stand:)

I was recently in Texas visiting four of my munchkins(and their parents:)), and while I was there we had a tiny treats tea party! The kids helped with the prep and the set up, as did my daughter (their mom), and we all had a fun time!

The treats were fashioned from a book: American Girl tiny treats.  I first was introduced to the book via a pin on Pinterest, which led to this post, and the book! I was instantly charmed by all of the teeny treats.

I let the kids each pick something to make and we ended up with cinnamon rolls, s'mores, croissants, donuts and pizza. 

Here's Megan with the cinnamon rolls, ready to place on the baking sheet and pop in the oven.
You don't have to wait long for things to bake when they're so tiny:)
This tea party was for boys (well, one anyway) too. Jake picked pizza to make, and sure enjoyed himself.
He even made an appearance as Ironman:).
 
Karaline donned proper tea party attire before she made an appearance. She did a great job on the name tags at the place settings and setting the table too!
 Happy 7th Birthday today, sweet Karaline! We love you! XO!

Little Addy was napping during the tea party, but here she is peeking outside at her siblings jumping on the trampoline. Hi Cutie!
The micro mini croissants up close. 

The croissants are made using Pillsbury crescent rolls. Simply roll out and cut one large triangle into small (2-inch at wide end) triangles using a pizza wheel. Roll each small triangle up starting at the wide end.  When done rolling, curve down the two ends. VOILA, a micro-mini croissant! Bake for 8 minutes at 375 degrees.  

All the treats are very quick and easy to make.

At our next tea party we're going to make cakes!

Tiny tea parties produce BIG time fun!

  24. Wow, these are just awesome. How cute are these miniature bites, I love them. They just have a massive cute factor for such small items, hehe.

    I hope you don't mind me stopping by, subbing and commenting every now and again? It's always nice to meet new friends with the same interests. I've just started out in the world of baking myself. I love finding new blogs like yours to stop by, chat, and be inspired by great talent (which you certainly have).

    Keep on baking,
    -Lisa.
