I am sure most bloggers want their first real post of the new year to be sublime, an impressive display, a creation to evoke jealousy in other food blogger (said jokingly of course). Well not I, nope, I bring you leftovers! But I am not doing it because I want to, I swear, it is the fault of the Creative Cooking Crew hi hi.
Our first theme for 2015 is: Repurposing Leftovers or How Many Meals Can You Get From One. I went with repurposing. I actually hosted the 25th (family) and the 31st (friends) but both were pot-lucks. Lots of leftovers but small quantities of things that did not necessarily mesh well. So I decided to layer up slices of desserts! I bring you A Cake Reconstruction!
Top to bottom:
- a cousin brought a lovely sorbet cake. The flavors were raspberry, dark chocolate and mango.
- my coconut cream pie recipe
- a lemon poppy seeds coffee cake
- Dec 24th’s dessert that I made from a recipe over at Angie’s Recipes, a Double Chocolate Poppy Pistachio Torte
Honestly, I do not recommend you try this experiment at home unless purely for fun. It tasted sweet but all the flavors were competing for attention, it tasted like sugar and nothing else. But it sure was pretty lol.
Thank you Lazaro Cooks and Foodalogue for this month’s fun challenge. Check out what the other members have created on our Pinterest board by clicking on the banner below.
And, the winner of the the “break the January diet” is this. How glorious to get al those bites in one bite.
Whoa dudette 🙂 how cool 🙂 Love this!
I love looking at the photo, so colorful! (even if it was sweet!) If I was a kid, this would have been my dream dessert! Fun!
OMG…I so love this post Evelyne! This is the sort of thing that makes me happy…yes, tasting sugar all the way. You made it look so gorgeous too!
These colors, oh my so delicious! 🙂
Okay, you’ve just made me very hungry right now lol. I am so loving this.
Happy Happy Happy New Year Evelyne! That cake looks incredible. Look forward to more of your posts in 2015.
Wow!That looks amazing,Evelyne!You are very creative…..Happy New Year!
I so would volunteer to sample this reconstruction 🙂 Happy New Year, Evelyne!
Despite you not recommending trying it, I would rather join Angie and have a bite 😉
What a combination! I seriously want to have a bite tooo.
Thanks for the shoutout, Evelyne. And Happy New Year!
Well, you get bonus points for creativity! I’m thinking my sons would be happy to try out a dessert like this one—especially if I have a bunch of chocolate leftovers 🙂
Woow all these flavors!!! no wonder they will compete 🙂 . But this is really fun, I have some leftover desserts too and am thinking of layering them just for fun. Happy new year my dear.
Hah, brave to post a dessert when most people are resolving to lose weight but fun nonetheless. Yes, why not layer all those myriad leftover desserts?
Oh my, Evelyne, you have me laughing! I don’t think I’ll be trying this one anytime soon 🙂
Happy new year to you!
I just love your spirit, Evelyne! This is so something me and my brothers would do together!
This is such a fun post! I think that all of us love to see ways to use leftover cakes or to revamp something that it looks boring to our eyes after eating too much from it!
Thanks for the honest feedback – I won’t attempt to recreate this dessert.
But it does look interesting, sort of reminds me of a trifle.
This is a crazy combination, but it does meet the challenge. Good for you for starting the year off with an honest “Whoops!” 🙂 Happy 2015!!
Oh wow I don’t know about wanting to evoke jealousy from other bloggers with the first post. I think just getting through the NY period unscatched would be impressive!
