So, when Donsuemor contacted me about having a tea party with their madeleines, I immediately knew what I wanted to do.
Back in October, I was a part of Donsuemor’s “Dessert a Day” campaign where I made these babies out of the chocolate madeleines. For the tea party, they sent me a variety of flavors to serve, along with some Davidson’s Organic Tea.
Now I knew I was going to serve madeleines at the tea party. But this is me we’re talking about, so I couldn’t not make a dessert. But I wanted to make something that would highlight the flavor of the madeleines, not upstage them. What to make?
Thanks to Ashton, I always think about dip. (If you read her blog, you’ll understand and should be nodding in agreement.)
In my yummy madeleine box I had the traditional flavor, plus chocolate dipped, chocolate, and lemon. I immediately thought of white chocolate, which lead me to cheesecake. White Chocolate Cheesecake Dip. It’s irresistable. The madeleines tasted SO good dipped in it. So did a spoon. Seriously, I had to freeze the leftover because I was afraid to have it in my refrigerator.
And, let’s talk for a minute. I’m a chocolate girl. I love chocolate. And vanilla. I most certainly do not love lemon. In fact, I’d never even had a lemon dessert until I was craving lemon pie last year and loved it. So, of course, I sampled all the madeleines and was expecting to love the chocolate one the most. Wrong. Guess which one is the best flavor ever?
Yup, the lemon.
Jordan invited a friend over for the tea. Turns out, her friend has the same doll she does. I decided to make some finger sandwiches and fruit for the girls; treats only go so far. But, of course, Jenny and Emily needed to have their own snacks.
When I cut up the kid sandwiches, I just cut one of the wedges in little tiny triangles. I cut little tiny carrot sticks from baby carrots, and broke off little squares of Wheat Thins. (Thanks to Family Fun Magazine for the ideas!)
There’s Jenny, enjoying her madeleine.
That’s Emily. She at all her sandwiches. She must’ve been hungry!
The kids had so much fun at the tea party, Jordan has been begging to do it again every day. She wants to have every single friend over for tea. So as I write this, tea party II has just ended. Alas, there were no madeleines left.
One guess where they went.
Stuff I gotta write: Donsuemor provided me with the madeleines and tea for my tea party. All opinions expressed about the tea or the madeleines are completely my own.
