Easy Tea Cakes for Kids


Now that we've got the picnic blanket made, there's a lot of tea parties going on. And you know what makes a good tea party, right? Cake! So I whipped up a few of these petite tea cakes for the party. They only take about five minutes to make, promise.

Tea Cake Recipe

Ingredients:

Pound Cake - the kind you find in the frozen section is best because of the texture. They're easy to cut and even carve into shapes.

Strawberries

Cool Whip

Here's what the pound cake looks like.

Cut into thin slices, trim crust, cut into small rectangles ( about 1 1/2 inch long).

Filling: Cut up a couple of strawberries and mix with some cool whip. Just enough to coat the strawberries. You can also use jam for the filling.

Spread filling on one slice of pound cake. Place second slice on top of filling.

Frost cake with cool whip. Decorate any way you wish.

Invite guests.

I think this guest's eyes are bigger than his stomach.
