Princess Toast

I made these sparkly treats for my daughter's Brownie troop and they're great for princess parties. Sometimes I use lemon curd in place of the jam. —Marina Castle Kelley, Canyon Country, California

Pretty Meringues

Light and airy, these mythical meringues from Mom Dot will satisfy any sweet tooth. The trick to getting the perfect shape is to beat the egg whites just enough (but not too much) so that they form stiff peaks. Not sure how to do that? Follow this guide to making meringue.

Unicorns might not exist (sigh) but this banana bread from Deliciously Sprinkled sure does. Simply start with a classic banana bread recipe (here are some of our favorites, from A to Z!), then drizzle vanilla icing over top and toss on a splash of sweet sprinkles.

Magical Manes

The only thing better than a rich, buttery blondie is that same blondie dipped in melted white chocolate and sprinkles, which is exactly what these mouthwatering “manes” are—and why we can’t help stealing seconds (oops!).

Blinged-Out Bark

Two words: edible glitter. That and swirls of pretty pastels is all you need to make this tasty treat from A Magical Mess. Tip: If you can’t find multi-colored candy melts (check the grocery store or your local craft store), simply mix food coloring into plain white ones.

Dreamy Dip

Somewhere over the rainbow… is this colorful condiment from Chocolate Covered Katie. A blend of yogurt, cream cheese and vanilla extract, it pairs perfectly with golden graham crackers, crunchy cookies or fresh fruit. (And if you eat it with a spoon, we totally aren’t judging either!)
