I'm a sucker for easy recipes (pun intended) and there's nothing easier than these Valentine's Heart Lollipops - Wait for it...Made with left over candy canes from Christmas!

Recipe | How to Make Homemade Marshmallows

Recipe | How to Make Homemade Marshmallows

Following on from my posts last week on styling a Hot Cocoa Bar  here and here , I thought it would really be handy to share a recipe on how to make l Homemade Marshmallows ! ;) I know you may be thinking -  "Why the heck would I want to make my own marshmallows" - Well, I thought that too...BEFORE I made them!! The taste for starters, is beyond dreamy (and quite addictive). Plus, it's a real fun thing to make (with or without kids).  AND if that wasn't enough to convince you, making your own marshmallows means you can color them and cut them in any shape you like to match your party theme and colors perfectly! ;)

A SpiderMan Inspired 5th Birthday Party

A SpiderMan Inspired 5th Birthday Party

Hi this is Dorangela from Two Prince Bakery Theater , excited to be here with you today! My darling boy turned 5 recently and he has a slight obsession with Spider-Man, so there was no question what theme his party would have to be! Not only did we have a theme, we also knew it would have to be completely gluten free in order for both of my boys to be able to enjoy it all! I am not one to throw parties that are too character based, as in using all character plates etc., so I decided to do a vintage feel. I was lucky enough to get Bird's Party Spider Hero Printables which worked perfectly. I love the primary colors and vintage feel!
