Dried orange slices are so easy to make at home and look fabulous decorating cakes and bakes or being used for decorations around the home.

Dried Orange Slices are a stunning piece of Christmas in my house. I use them as topping for my bakes (wonderful cupcake decorations) to decorations to hang up on the tree. They are also the perfect addition to a homemade wreath or potpourri to make your home smell incredible.

I love the look of dried oranges and they are brilliantly versatile and long lasting for decorations. To make them you simply cut the orange in to approximately 5mm-8mm slices. Using kitchen paper dab off as much of the juice as you can.

Lay the orange slices on a oven wrack and pop in the oven for about 3 hours on a low temperature. I did mine at 80ºC in a fan oven.
