These are the cutest little cinnamon rolls ever! The first thing I thought when I was cutting them and putting them on the baking sheet was that they would be perfect for a tea party with a little girl.
Now, as you know I have a little BOY. One who is not even the teeniest bit interested in tea parties (although he does love him some Twinings English Breakfast Tea. If I'm not careful, he'll drink my whole cup before I get a chance to), so I'm sharing this recipe with all my friends who are Mommies to wee little girls who would love to have a Tea Party with their Mama (Jenn, Charissa, Julie, Sherrie, April...I'm thinking of you guys!).
Hope you all had a safe and relaxing 4th of July with your loved ones! Till tomorrow!
