Autumn Tea

The Fall is absolutely
my Favorite season!
I love everything about it-
especially steamy cups of tea
served with delicious
Dessert Cakes!
This is my beautiful AuTuMn tea set.
It was given to me as a gift
after I admired it in the
Cracker Barrel Country Store.
...so ExQuiSitE

It fits perfectly with fall festivities!

To accompany our tea ~
homemade sweet goodness...
This delightful treat is the recipe from

You will love this cake as much as I do

  1. Good morning Concetta :) Your tea set is certainly perfect for Fall. Very lovely, and your Honey Bun cake looks simply Delish!! Fall is not my favorite time, as we have lots of trees that lose their leaves and cover up our yard completely....and it's a reminder that snow is just around the corner...EEEKKKK!!

    Wishing you a lovely Tea Tuesday!!

    Warmest hugs, Brenda

  2. Hi Concetta,
    Your Honey Bun Cake sounds delish and I must try it for our Bible study group. Thanks for the recipe. The tea set is perfect for Fall. Fall is not my favourite time of year either. It is just a reminder that the long cold winter is on its way and we'll be walking through ice and snow before we know it. I'm glad you can enjoy it however. Living in Florida, you have lovely weather all year long. You are blessed! Thank you for once again joining me for tea. I hope you are having a lovely day.

You asked me to let you know if I tried making the honey bun cake and, in fact, I baked it last night for my husband to take to work with him this morning! Rave reviews from hubby AND the nurses. I didn't get to taste it since I had to send it intact, but I'll get my turn this weekend when I bake it again for a birthday brunch on Sunday. Thank you so much!

Pursue the practice of hospitality.
