  1. I’ve always included a Bundt cake at my tea parties. They are easy to make and there are so many flavors. I would like to serve pralines at my next party but they are hard to come by so I may have to learn to make them myself. Nice, helpful article.

    • The 3 tiered stand is very traditional, The photos only show three or four food items per tier, usually different varieties. If there are four or more guests present, obviously that would not be enough, or give each person a chance to try the one they would rather have. Is this done just for purposes of the lovely photos? What is the proper way to serve additional tea sandwiches?
