Carnival Choco-Chiptastic Citrus Cakes & Sweet Spice Orange Cookies

Oranges. They’re refreshing. They’re sweet. They’re one of my all-time favorite fruits.

Yeah, I love mangoes too, but since I’d already added the Mango Breezes Triple Stack Cookies to the shop, I decided to create a couple of orange-flavored treats for those of you who also love a little tang.

The Choco-Chiptastic Citrus Mini Cakes (Left) are 2 cakes packed to the brim with chocolate chips and orange flavor. If you’re crazy about the orange, but would rather hold off on the sweet bits of chocolate, you can munch on Carnival’s Sweet Spice Orange Cookies (Right). These moist and aromatic cookies are made with a blend of rind of oranges and sweet spice.

Enjoy either one with a cup up milk, tea, or rich hot chocolate. Or, if you really want to overdose on your orange fix, grab a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice. Your mouth will thank you big time 🙂

Also . . .

I’ve now added gift-packaging to the shop. If you find joy in giving, you can joyfully opt to have the gift recipient of your choice receive any one of Carnival’s mouthwatering treats in either a cake/cookies box or a candy box as seen below:

And you don’t have to go far for a greeting card either. These babies are hand-stamped (by me) with special designs. Add your personalized message to one of Carnival’s coordinating cards. I’ve added one card to the shop so far – 3 more are set to come very soon. Check them out:

Lo and behold: Bridal season is here. Bridezillas everywhere are putting the finishing touches on all the details for the big day they’ve anticipated for years.

But, there’ s one major part of the season every bride-to-be leaves in the hands of family or friends. Yep . . . it’s the beloved bridal shower, where tears, champagne, and naughty lingerie collide. Without a doubt, it’s meant to be an affair to remember. And with that goal in mind, a lot of blood, sweat, and tears must go into organizing a superb bridal affair.

Please note: If the planner doesn’t bleed, the bride will not feel special.

Luckily, I’ve found an article on helium.com. Use this guide as a cheat sheet – it shares a few very valuable tips on serving up a celebration that’s painless. Here’s a peek:

While thinking about a wedding shower you may wonder, who throws this party? When do you plan it? Where should it be held? When should it take place and what to feed your guests? Here are our suggestions for a fabulous Bridal Shower!

A nice description on the history of the Bridal Shower is shared here at Wikipedia. The Bridal Shower is traditionally one of the main duties of the Maid of Honor. Held in her home she is the hostess for this party where the bride to be is the Guest of Honor. The rules of Etiquette are changing and becoming more lax these days, so you may consider sharing these duties with members of the Wedding Party.

Here is some advice when planning a Bridal Shower for the Bride to Be!

* Always consult with the Bride, the groom and families as to how to proceed and what forms of etiquette are important to them.

* When putting together the guest list the Maid of Honor should always consult with the couple as to who to invite.

* It’s also common these days to use an online invitation service to contact and invite your guests, as long as they are internet savvy.

* Never invite people to the bridal Shower that are not invited to the Wedding. This is a etiquette question we get a lot and one we feel all couples and those planning the Shower should stick to.

* When inviting guests and picking a date, consult with the Bride and family. You’ll want to also pay attention to road closures or major sporting events that will make travel more difficult.
