    You can use candied orange slices in three ways. Way number 1: Store the candied orange slices covered with syrup in an airtight container in a fridge for up to two months. They are great for decorating cakes. Way number 2: Drain the candied orange slices, then transfer to a wire rack for the orange slices to dry.
