Yesterday I served three of my favorite desserts to a potluck crowd of a couple dozen…most of which left happily food-stoned…yes!

It felt like my first real catering gig. I probably spent around ten hours this weekend in preparation. And everything came out amazing. So much fun.

On the menu was a light and fluffy and tart raw mandarin cheesecake with fresh raspberry sauce, a chocolate cake with strawberry coconut mousse frosting, and a decadent peanut butter chocolate banana ice cream cake.

Seemed like the latter got the most excitement, and I’d have to agree…it’s something you’d want to die next to.

    Another event and a couple more delectable desserts~ memorable indeed! We enjoyed your mandarin raspberry cheesecake swirl on an almond crust with raspberry sauce and a dollop of coconut cream on top, and I decorated the plate with edible rose petals, the entire effect was gorgeous. And my other group enjoyed the spiced apple-pumpkin cake. Keep these uniquely beautiful, healthy, delicious desserts coming Stephen!
