  1. Do these till have a pleasant smell to them after baking? I was thinking it would make your house have such a nice smell if the oranges still gave off an aroma..

  2. Yes they do! I totally forgot to mention that. Yep, they still have pleasant citrus aroma to them after baking :)

  3. Ooooh I will have to try the sliced oranges! Great idea

  4. Hey Jess! I just tried the sugar ornaments with Weston and I think my cookie cutters are too big. Also, How did you slice your oranges so thin??

  5. Hey Jill! Hmm...I used a small and a large cookie cutter. I did have a few break apart so I just started over. I let them harden for 10 minutes or so while still in the cutter and then gently tapped it out. You also have to squish the points reeeally good to make sure they don't fall apart before you tap it out. Hope that helps! Oh, and the oranges...lol, I don't know how I got them so thin. I did use a serrated knife (if that helped?)
