I made Todd a Maraschino Cherry Valentines Cake.  I am so not a cake decorator.  It has seven minute frosting. 

Happy Valentines Day to you all!  Have a great day no matter what you get up to.  Don't forget!

  1. Hi Marie, you've inspired me to make an English Tea for Valentine's day. It is bitter cold here so probably won't be going out later. Loved the English Cottage tea cozy. And I plan on making the clotted cream. Any sign of my little package? I was so hoping it would arrive by Valentine's Day. Valentine hugs to you and Todd. Love, Elaine

    1. It might come later today when the post arrives Elaine! I'll let you know if it does! Valentines Tea Parties are the best! I might do one myself! Happy Valentines Day! xoxo

  2. Hi, Marie! HAPPY VALENTINE's DAY! LOVE, love, love the tea theme! That tea spill art is fabulous--wow! And the small paintings on tea bags... sooo sweet! All the tea food... Yum! Those Swedish Sandwich cakes are amazing... I have yet to make one, but should. LOVE all the tea cosies... I'll take all of the goodies here today! haha... ;) LOVELY cake you've made too! LOVE YOU SO MUCH, my Sister-Friend! MUCH LOVE to you & Todd and Mitzie from us here... ((LOVE & BIG HUGS))

    1. We are enjoying a few Norwegian television series at the moment Tracy! I thought a tea post would be fun for Valentines Day! Love you also Tracy. Happy Valentines day, love and hugs to you, TJ and Luna! xoxo

  3. I love your pattern links..would make them
    and all your teatime links and ideas..I think you would make the best tea party.
    Have a great day..
    I did make a very similar sandwich cake for one of our daughter's showers and it was such a hit..Anna Olson recipe..

    1. I will have to look for Anna Olsen's recipe. I think Anna Olsen is the best. We do get her show over here occasionally. I don't have any of her books yet, but I have wished for them! xoxo

  4. Thanks so much for sharing my afternoon tea blog post! Hope you have a lovely day filled with lots of tea :)

    1. You are welcome Lu Ann! I learned something new and I live in England! You would think I would know the difference, but I didn't really and now I do! You have a lovely blog! xoxo

  5. Hi Marie~

    I love all things tea just makes me smiles! I have never been to a proper tea party, but I would love to one day. When my great grandparents came from England, my grandfather brought his teacup with him. After he passed away the family couldn't decide who should get it so they donated it to, The Daughter's of Utah Pioneer Museum. I really need to go there and see if I can find it.

    I loved the cloth napkin tutorial. I would love to quit using so much paper and start using cloth.

    We were kind of lazy for Valentine's Day. Bob had leftovers and I had PB&J. It's all good though, we will watch a movie and have popcorn!!

    Happy Valentine's Day to you and your sweetheart!! Love you both!

    Hugs and Love,

    1. Tea parties are so much fun Barb. Sometimes I do one just for Todd and myself! Its a great way to break up the monotony of Winter days! Oh how wonderful that your grandfathers teacup is in the museum. I hope that you can find it and share a photo of it with us! Love you and Bob aso. Love and hugs, xoxo
