View Full Version : birthday dessert ??
05-07-2007, 11:33 AM
I've been browsing the recipe board, trying to figure out what kind of raw dessert we can do for our sons birthday (he'll be 3 in a couple of weeks). I did find a TON of recipes that sounds SO YUMMY, but for a day that is so special, I want to make sure it's going to be a hit! I'd absolutely love suggestions.
We don't have a dehydrator, so keep that in mind :)
THANKS in advance!!!

If your son likes cherries and chocolate, Alissa's Black Forest Cake is amazing!!!!

I don'a have alissas book (yet), but that black forest cake sounds like heaven! Anyone have the recipe?
That, coupled with the bavarian vanilla custard would be wonderful! Yum.

I've always thought this cake looked SO yummy!
(the first photo is of mushrooms, just scroll down a bit! :D - and the cake recipe that she used is linked in the same post right below the UN-FROSTED cake photo)
and later in the thread, young Zena had posted the frosting that she used:
1 cup whole cashews or cashew halves, soaked for 30 minutes to an hour
4-6 pitted dates, soaked for 5-10 minutes
1 tablespooon raw honey or maple syrup
1 tablespoon cold-pressed organic extra-virgin olive oil or cold-pressed coconut butter (optional)
1/2 fresh vanilla bean
Blend everything. Add date soak water 2 tablespoons at a time as needed to blend smooth.

ok, YUM!!!! That cake look fabulous!!! I think I'll tweak it a little bit, with dried pineapple layers, and even bavarian vanilla custard layers. Topped with that great looking frosting and strawberries (one of his favorites) Oooh, yum yum yum! I don't know if I'll be able to wait until June 1st! lol
thank you, thank you, thank you!

I made a cake with a layer of the bavarian vanilla custard in it, and then iced the whole thing with it. Truly magnificent.
