    Each June we have a special service in the country at a lovely Heritage Site ... a beautiful old Church, people gather to enjoy the service and of course there is always a wonderful lunch served. I would so like to bring something 'new' this year. I would appreciate some of your recipes, for cakes/bars ... your favorite top two that you find are crowd pleasers!

    Pineapple upsidedown cake, always an old fashioned favourite: cake
    Rhubarb coffee cake everyone goes nuts over the topping
    Sour Cream Raisin bars old fashioned and different
    Banana Cake wonderful with cream cheese icing.

    Sorry, I reread, you wanted the top two...I make the banana cake and the rhubarb one all the time and often get requests/raves.

    For desserts to take to covered dish dinners, I always tried to remember that children would be present also... kids who weren't always interested in fancy cakes, pies, and strange/different bar cookies.

    I would make cupcakes (pick up and go/not have to try to get slice of cake on small plate) and decorate the tops in an attractive way, appropriate to the season, and appealing to kids. Even tho I made 4 dozen, they were always the 1st dessert gone!

    Another dessert I made that was very popular was sugar cookies covered in different colored decorator sugars. Even adults raved about LeaBelle's Sugar Crinkles. My favorite trick was to dip the sides of the cookies into three different colored sugars and placing the dough on the cookie sheet w/ the "interection" of the three colors on the top. When the cookies baked, you could see all three colors on the top of the cookie... kids are particularly attracted to those b/c they try to figure out how it was done.

    You could also make My Special Brownies in paper-lined muffin tins. It would take a bit long to make but the brownie cupcakes would be easily transportable and kid-friendly.

    For adults, I would take:
    Cherry Pound Cake With Cherry Nut Frosting
    Clara's Pound Cake

    Hope this helps. Good luck!

    Len23, I think that my name was Shels over there too. I didn't post a whole lot, but I got a lot of great advice from hanging out there! Haven't been there since about 6 months after my wedding (Mar '03).

    The Zaar Baar was developed for a recent recipe contest here on Zaar. They are full of good things for you and also extremely easy to eat....good thing the recipe makes a lot. icon_lol.gif

    Of course, you have to counteract the delicious healthfulness of the Zaar Baar by consuming chocolate - have I got the Brownie recipe for you! Chocolate-Fudge Brownies. icon_wink.gif icon_lol.gif

    Sorry to hijack you guys, I'll be quick.
    Shels, a bunch of us moved over to (married woman) if you're interested in checking us out. Lots of former CBers who wanted to talk more than weddings.

    This cake has been my favorite since I was a child (but beware, it is a little on the rich side). A bit of work to make, but, in my opinion, so worth it, in the end (thus, the name icon_biggrin.gif )

    So Worth it Coconut Cake (recipe #91944).

    Have a great time!
