Are you ready for another raw vegan dessert challenge?! I had such a blast with both The Moonie Pie Challenge and The Ultimate Raw Ice Cream Cake Challenge that I feel the time is ripe for a new one. Based on the feedback I received, you had fun too, and may be ready for more!
As stated in the previous challenge, my idea behind these challenges is to gather together a group of people who have a love for raw desserts. I see so many people who are intimidated to make "over the top", gourmet desserts, so they turn to the same ol' repertoire time and time again. My intention is to show that anyone can create complex looking desserts by breaking down a recipe into a few simple steps.
That being said, this time around, the idea is a light, fun, summer dessert that is EASY to make, but can be dressed up as much as you like. So just what might that perfect treat be??
Summer Party Parfait
Conjure up your most FUN summer party parfait, mixing and matching the recipes in my book. I know you're creative! Let it all out here!
Just as I did with the two previous contests... I will feature all parfait entries on my site in the form of one of your photos, along with a link back to your cake post.
