Valentines Tea Party ~ Galentines ~ Baking, Recipes and Treats ~

I know I did a Valentines recipe post yesterday but as I said any reason to bake!!!! Now this is a Galentines post!!!

So we had a little Valentines Day Themed Tea Party and Crafty Day!!!!

I baked some cute mini cupcakes! Using the Odlums recipe here, but I added some red food colouring to make them "Valentinesy"


  • 125g/4oz Odlums Self Raising Flour
  • 125g/4oz Butter or Margarine  (room temperature)
  • 125g/4oz Caster Sugar
  • 2 Eggs (room temperature)
  • Few Drops Vanilla Essence

  • Just mix all your ingredients together
    Fill your (mini red polka dot/valentines) cupcake cases
    Bake in a preheated oven at 160C for 12 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.


    I iced these more like fairy cakes or buns using icing sugar and a tiny drop of water and food colouring. I topped them with some pink sugar on the white ones and "Love Heart" sweets on the pink ones!

    I was looking for some Valentines biscuits so I choose Jammy Dodgers as they have hearts on them! Some Mikado as they are pink and some Chocolate Digestives as everyone loves chocolate! We had a box of Family Circle too and some Celebrations!

    While in Tesco I picked up these cute love heart napkins for €1.50!!

    We had a great day opening our exhibition, crafting, eating cakes and biscuits and drinking tea!!!

    Hope you have a great Valentines however and with whoever you spend it!!!

    1. I love tea parties! I only made chocolate dipped strawberries and stuffed French toast for Valentines but once I move and get new furniture, I'd love to have high tea in my own home! :)


      1. Only made... said she!! Stuffed French Toast and chocolate dipped strawberries is loads!!!
        But a proper tea party with one of those 3 tier stands would be amazing!!!!
