No Bake Fairy Cakes Recipe + FREE Fairy Party Printables

final

Something fun and exciting happened for my daughter this weekend, she was able to do a front pull over on the uneven bars in gymnastics. For her, this is a huge deal due to poor muscle tone and motor aprexa. It’s a goal she has been working on for quite some time, so when she finally hit this goal, we just had to make sure we made a big deal out of it, and celebrate! What’s a better way to celebrate than with a small party right? Now being a busy mom I didn’t have time to throw a grand affair but I wanted to make sure to take the time to show my daughter how proud of her I was. So I teamed up with Sara Lee® to make a special treat and day for my little lady and I wanted to share it with you! I present to you….No Bake White Chocolate Fairy Cakes! The perfect easy-to-make treat so you can celebrate life’s little moments.

Simple No Bake Cheesecake Recipe in Jars

This may sound awful but I am into single serving desserts for two reasons one I need portion control and the second reason is my kids touch everything. I hate to share especially a simple no bake cheesecake recipe in a mason jar. I love this easy to follow recipe because my kids can make it. They look stunning on your table when you have friends over or just when you want to do something nice. I have even frozen these for a summer treat. The truth is they are so easy to make and you can substitute the crust for any cookie of your choice and the fruit topping with anything you would like. And I know for sure that they will be a fan favorite.Continue reading
