Fun With Little Debbie Cakes




I like when you can do something cute, but fun and easy. I noticed these Little Debbie cakes in the grocery the other day, and they reminded me of my pale pink tea set that some of you ask about. The china pattern is Royal Pettau, marked Germany US Zone.



The pale pinks are similar, and I love the understated color. Rather than red for Valentines, I felt like the ivories and whites with just a touch of pink today. The little cakes are perfect for just a bite of sweetness. The grand-girls love them of course! And they're perfect with a spot of tea.




Book pages are from A Country Diary, and lend the vintage look I love with the ecru lace.




































I hope your week is full of hearts and flowers!

Jacqueline

I think those Little Debbies are so cute. I've ate a whole box of them already! They go so well with tea! I actually thought of doing a post using the Little Debbies, but you beat me! You put everything together so beautifully, as usual.
Thanks for sharing,
Nancy

We were thinking alike today. I pictured the Little Debbie cakes on my blog too. I had intended to use little heart paper doilies too and forgot!

I love these Little Debbie cakes, and you make them look so elegant!

Willow said...

Everything looks lovely and you have brought back some great memories. I use to buy our kids those same cakes for valentines day when they were little.

Olga said...

Beautiful post! The cakes are so pretty and delicious.
In the previous comment, Willow said she used to buy them for her kids. It would be fun to start such Valentine's Day tradition for my kids. I will see where I can buy them.

Johanna said...

Hi Jacqueline,
your little Debbie cakes look so sweet with the white paper hearts. Just as if they are made for them. And the delicate tea cups are so charming. This is such a sweet post. Thank you for sharing.
Best greetings, Johanna

A Super Dilettante said...

I love it! Ribbons and the cake and heart shaped paper. Presentation is impeccable. It reminds me of a trip to Laduree, Harrod's world famous patisserie counter. I remember that I was spoilt for choice as their cakes are really are to-die for. Butterscotch eclairs have beautiful Harrods symbol stamped onto the chocolate!! And then they wrapped them in a beautiful pink box with ribbon to take away. It looked so perfect and beautiful that I didn't want to bring myself to eat it!!

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Oh, I love the softness of your post! The pink cakes and teacup are lovely together and I do LOVE your pretty teacup! Nothing is more feminine than soft pink and white. Thank you for sharing your delightful post and enjoy your day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Jacqueline,
I've been letting "Mr. Ed" do the grocery shopping the past couple of weeks to fill in his days since his retirement. I had NO idea the Little Debbie cakes were in the stores! Your post is full of sweetness! I adore the use of vintage books and poetry and prose from their contents. Lovely post!
Fondly,
Pat
P.S. I'm going directly to the grocer after work tomorrow!!!

What a gorgeous share. I love Little Debbie snacks and these little pinks are perfect to go along with your gorgeous tea setting. Perfect for the occasion.

I simply adored the use of the poetry book as well. How romantic. Thank you so much for sharing with me today. I have enjoyed my visit.
