I have featured 25 amazing ways you can serve food in a tea cup at your party. Read On..

 

1. COOKIE STAND

Use 2 tea plates and 1 cup to create a makeshift mini cookie stand.

3. COOKIE ON A CUP

This works best when the cut is made during the bake. If not, you use a sharp exacto knife, & slowly chip/sand away the cookie to use it on the cup. However, this is gonna be quite time consuming. You should keep a few spares, since they might crack while making the cavity and also while serving.

 

 

4. TEABAG COOKIES

Very eclectic tea bag cookies in the cup! Says it all. It’s difficult to add the tags once they are baked. They would most likely crumble. You need to ask the baker to include a small punch to add the tea tags.

 

 

5. SPICED TEA

Accent the spiced teas with cinnamon sticks. They also double up as stirrers. Try them once before you serve them, many of them might not like the taste. Also, clean the cinnamon sticks well before you use it.

 

 

6. SUGAR

Arrange a few madeleines for the party. Remember, they dry up real soon. So, style them only when you are close to service.
