Kitty loves to have tea parties with her fury friends. Lately, Mr T has joined in the fun and it is so sweet to see them working together, setting out a fantastic feast for their bears and other beloved Lovies. Recently, Kitty explained that her tea guests sometimes complain that they get tired of eating leaves and sticks and often long for real cakes and cookies. So, today’s family craft was making ‘real’ treats for their tea parties.

We made our tea treats with playdough, baked it to make it hard and then painted it.

Here is our fantastic, hardly-ever-fail playdough recipe.

We filled our mini cupcake tin with playdough to get the cupcake form and then put the dough in mini cupcake liners.

With a candle, we made holes in our ‘cupcakes’ so that so that ‘candles’ would fit in them when they were baked (of course, don’t bake them with the candles in still , lol).

We also made a few ‘cookies’ and a slice of cake. We put our playdough treats on a baking sheet and baked them for about an hour at 300F. Feel them to gauge when they are ready… they should be hard and no longer squishy.

We had such fun painting them all sorts of yummy colors. Hmmmmmm, chocolate!

Kitty collected a small stick from the garden to make rainbow sprinkles.

And, Voila!!! Our yummy cupcakes were ready for a tea party.

Mrs Bear was invited and wore her wonderful hat.

The table was set with a rainbow playsilk and all the yummy goodies set out on Kitty’s finest china.

Candles were collected for the cupcakes.

Mr T had to try the chocolate cake and decided to leave it for the stuffed animals.

Kitty served them all acorn tea.

A magical tea party was had by all and the cakes and cookies have been stored away for the next grand occasion.

Blessings and magic,

  1. This is such a wonderful idea.
    My girls would love it and I am sure their tea party regulars would appreciate a change of menu.
    Thank you so much for another inspirational suggestion.

  2. What fun! I imagine that Kitty and her friends will enjoy this toy food for hours. I did this once with my kids, but not all of the “food” turned out so pretty. ;)

  3. This is SO cute! We have wooden play food (fruit, veg and pastries) but making more cakes and delights would tickle our little ones’ fancies no end! Thank you, and beautiful photos as always! X

  4. what a great idea! Im going to try this even though im pretty sure ill have a hard time getting the littlies i look after not to eat them as they look so good:)

  5. This is such a great idea! I actually have a huge batch of play dough I had tried to dye at a different step that I normally do, and the color wouldn’t take and I had to set aside for later since I really needed a coloured one that day. I’m glad I kept this plain dough now, I guess we’ll be making this on the weekend :)
