Kate and I have foxed you for January I think…..I bet you thought we would go all frugal on you and post a weight loss challenge, NOT so! 

We want January to be a sweet treats challenge and with Epiphany in mind and King Cakes making their appearance, we decided on….
~ Sweet Pastries and Breads ~ 
You can all say thank you now!

So, let January be a Sweet month for Tea Time Treats, all sweet pastries and breads can be submitted, such as:

Danish Pastries
Pain au Chocolats
Fruit Breads
Jam Tarts
Apple Turnovers
Cream Horns
Iced Finger Buns
That is just a small example of what Kate and I are looking forward to trying on our Tea Time Table.
I am lucky enough to be hosting January’s Sweet Blow Out challenge……sorry Kate, your turn next month.

    I always plan to enter this but never get around to it – I'll try really hard this month as I love sweet pastries. Happy New Year.

  4. cakeboule says

    Might give this a go not really done any pastries so wish me luck. Give me chance to try something new

  5. Janice says

    Oh my goodness, this is not going to fit with my new year's resolutions at all! However, I have been itching to make Paul Hollywood's iced buns since the Bake off, so maybe I'll make them and give them away.

  6. Dom at Belleau Kitchen says

    I mean I can feel the fat rolling over the waistband of my troosers as I sit here already and now you want me to bake croissantary too!!! Oy Vey!!

  7. Baking Addict says

    Thank you Karen. This fits in perfectly with my new year baking/blogging resolution – to make something I've never made before which includes pastries and breads. Just hope my oven gets fixed quickly!

  8. Choclette says

    Oh good, I'm so pleased – iI find it so depressing when everyone goes on a crash diet in January and won't eat or cook anything interesting!!! It's about time I turned my thoughts to pastries – mmmmm.

  9. Karen S Booth says

    Thanks MintCustard, I got your email which is much more important than adding to the blog hop, BUT, I have added your post for you, so people can see it! THANKS for entering Tea Time Treats.

  10. Laura@howtocookgoodfood says

    Oh happy days, I have a great pastry creation that needs posting. Now it will be my first post of 2012 and happily it fits in with this challenge……Bon Anee! X

      Thanks so much for joining in with Tea Time Treats! I have just moved from blogger to WordPress, so the linky needs to be reset! BUT, if you have emailed me your entry that is all that is required! The linky was just an experiment! Tea Time Treats email is: Thanks again for your participation! Karen
