Friday afternoon I hosted a small get together with my girlfriends to enjoy tea and treats. Little did I think I would be able to enjoy all of the treats! Everyone brought something that was gluten free! It was so amazing! Usually I go to events or parties where the only food I can nibble on are the veggies and fruit. I also love when an event advertises that there will be gluten free options…they end up being the fruit and vegetable tray….
A Gluten Free Afternoon Tea Party
I was so happy and full at the end of the party, all of the gluten free goodness was making me so excited! It was so nice that my friends were so thoughtful to bake gluten free 🙂
The very left of the picture are cake pops – yup, the little treat that is booming in popularity. Supposidly this little treat was developed by a lady named Angie Dudley, writing a blog entitled Bakerella. The first time I saw cake pops were in Starbucks, advertised as the treat under 200 calories. They looked so cool, however I obviously couldn’t enjoy one as they were not gluten free. It was so fun on Friday to finally try a gluten free one! I hope to make these little guys soon so I can share the recipe with you all.
Other treats included gluten free date squares and baked brie cheese (not shown on the table), gluten free yogurt parfait, gluten free brownies, and gluten free corn biscuits. I made the corn biscuits using a mix from Bulk Barn. I had never made corn muffins/bread before, nor had I ever tried it. I thought it would be more moist and muffin-like, however they resembled that of a tea biscuit…which I quite enjoyed. They went perfectly with tea, and spread with a little butter. The next time I make them I think I will make them smaller and sprinkled with a little cheddar cheese.
It was such a beautiful afternoon, I would love to do this again!
