Saturday Tea Party

What better way is there to celebrate a birthday than with a grown up tea party! I helped celebrate my friend Vanessa's birthday over the weekend and it was the perfect excuse to wear my new dress (Vanessa forced me to wear it and since it was her birthday she got what she wanted). 
The table was set with beautiful vintage tea cups, macarons, scones and Devonshire cream. (I'd never had Devonshire cream before and it was delish!) We basically ate ourselves silly and I may or may not have been in pain by the end of the night (oops).
  And then it was cake time :S 
I attempted to make I am Baker's heart cake and I think it was fairly successful. If I could go back in time I would make the cake white and only do the heart pink so that it was easier to see. But my cake scooping and carving skills aren't too bad!
What do you think? Can you see the heart?

  2. Oh my gosh. Is it sad that I'd rather copy this for my 21st rather than go out to bars? The macarons alone sold me!

    Also I LOVE the dress. I'm glad your friend forced you to wear it!!
