Long, long ago in July, before I accepted a new job and moved back “home” and started teaching for the semester, a couple of my friends hosted a Tea Party. I was very excited to dress up, drink tea, and enjoy a variety of refreshments made by friends who, frankly, have more baking and cooking talent in their pinkies than I do overall. Nicolyn and I made a polka dot cake that turned out wonderfully! I don’t have a recipe to share–Nicolyn is like a baking wiz so I didn’t actually do much beyond mixing and filling pans and shaping polka dots–but I thought these pictures were definitely share-worthy!


We adapted the directions from Once Upon a Pedestal, who used a cake pop pan to make the polka dots. You can find those instructions here.
