This is a unique birthday "cake" molded in a bowl, with a beautiful presentation. I rushed to get this recipe in by memory for a 'zaar chef who requested it so if there is anything that needs to be corrected, please let me know. The directions seem long but it really is very simple, and can be done in so many ways. For lower fat, use frozen yogurt or ice milk & sorbet/sherbet. Ideally, this should be made the evening before it is to be served.
