View Full Version : how to make a b-day cake...

Our family on Christmas has a tradition of making a b-day cake for Jesus, BUT what would be a good replacement for that? I dont have a dehydrator that has a fan or a temperature gauge and. Therefore, I do not know if it will not cook food rather than simply dehydrate...So with that said, what would be a fun replacement b-day cake? Any ideas???

Try this one on for size (link to the cake recipe is in the same post with the photos...the frosting recipe is posted further down the thread: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13578&highlight=birthday+cake
And there are others posted if you care to search the recipe section for "birthday cake", but this one stuck in my mind as the photos looked SO GOOD!

U can make a cake without dehydrating it.
Blend nuts of your choice, and dates together. divide the mixture in 2, then mound half into a round layer of cake, or press into a square cake pan.
Then make a frosting with cashews, soaked dates, soak water so it becomes the consistency of frosting... or you can make a frosting with young coconuts. spread a thick layer. then press the rest of the nut/date on top....then frost the whole thing, and top it with fruits of your choice :)
i hope that made sense. good luck with your cake!

Thank you so much! I am pretty excited. I will give it a couple of practice runs to get everything right.

I've tried the cake that Rawkinlocs referred you to...and it was really good. You have to keep it cold, or maybe frozen...it's been awhile and I can't remember, but seems like after "awhile" it started to melt down. I liked it frozen...the only thing I didn't like about it was the seeds in the figs...but the taste was really good. I like the other idea posted here too. Good luck...let me know what you do, My kids would enjoy making a Birthday cake for Jesus!!
