Back To School DIY Pudding Bar

by Jillian Leslie on

Back To School DIY Pudding Bar |

My daughter started school last week, and while it all went well, she was definitely a little blah this weekend. I think she was exhausted from the excitement. I've learned over the years that when there is a high, there is usually a low to follow.

So I was happy when Snack Pack® asked me to come up with a fun way to celebrate back to school. When Lainey saw me on Sunday, starting to set up this back to school DIY pudding bar, and she knew it was just for her, she pepped up and dove in to help.

Cinderella Birthday Party Dessert Table Treats |

I took Lainey, my daughter, to see the new Cinderella movie last week and we both loved it! It was true to the original movie, but seeing it with live action characters, made it feel even more real. We were totally swept up in the drama and romance.

With all the excitement around the movie, we are definitely seeing more Cinderella parties being added to Catch My Party.

Candied Orange Slice Recipe

by Jillian Leslie on

Candied Orange Slice Recipe |

If you're serving cake this holiday, and need to save time, do what I did here. Buy a white cake at the grocery store, and add some homemade touches like candied orange slices and I promise your guests will be impressed.

Making these candied orange slices was super easy. The only thing you need to be aware of is that your orange slices need time to dry, like two hours in a warm oven. Other than that, there's really nothing to it and the candied orange slices were delicious -- sweet, tangy, and chewy. They're definitely great for cake decorating, but you can serve them on their own as a candied treat, and your guests will eat them up!
