Gather the kids and let them help. You are really going to love these simple, beautiful and delicious tea cakes that are perfect for any bridal shower, baby shower, Mother’s Day, Easter-the list goes on.
What You Will Need to Make the Tea Cakes
We used a boxed cake mix to keep this easy, Betty Crocker Super Moist French Vanilla. When I use a box cake mix, I add applesauce instead of the vegetable oil. It tastes great and makes the cake moist. You will also need frosting- you can make it or but it. Buttercream frosting is the best for these tea cakes. You will need a sheet pan, mixer, a glass or cookie cutter, frosting kit, frosting spatula and a super cute cake plate.
Step 1: Mix your cake batter and pour it onto a sheet pan.
Step 2: Bake your cake.

TIP: After you take your cake out of the oven, cover it with plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator to cool. This will get the cake extra moist.
Step 3: After the cake cooled, I used a glass to cut out the circles. The glass didn’t cut really clean edges, a cookie cutter would have given me a cleaner cut. Cut three circles per tea cake.
Step 4: Make and color the frosting. We colored half of out frosting pink and left the other half the natural creamy color.
Step 5: Add the frosting to the frosting to the frosting bag, putting the pink frosting on one side of the bag and the white frosting on the other side of the bag. The two colors will mix slightly and give you a variegated look.
Step 5: Frost 2/3 of the cake circles. Stack two frosted circles on top of each other. Then add a plain cake circle to the top. Using the frosting bag and tip, create a swirl of frosting. Add the cake sprinkles and mint leaves.
Step 6: Enjoy!
