Sweetly Raw Dessert Party

You're invited to a Sweetly Raw Dessert Party... or at least an online version!

For ages I've wanted to put on a raw dessert party, but due to the super busy summer job I've held for the past 5 years, it wasn't possible. Now that I'm free from that position, party time has come. After days of preparation, I held the event for 14 people at my house yesterday afternoon. I had so much fun planning and executing the menu. Naturally, I wanted to make many more things than were feasible, but I'm happy with the menu I came up with. Since it was an action packed time, I didn't actually get photos of everything, but here is most of it...

    Phenomenal!!!<br /><br />Maybe we should organize a workshop while you're in Toronto. Would you be willing? I'm happy to help get the word out. Your work is beautiful and certainly demonstrates how amazing raw desserts can be.

  18. This is all just stunning! Wow!!! It was love at first sight with the orange chocolate cake! So pretty. I love how you used the pansies. And the chocolate .. o.m.g. Everything looks just gorgeous.

    Amazing! It looks and sounds too good to be true. How much time did you spend preparing that feast? <br />The online version of the party is beautiful, but I'm sure it doesn't compare to being there and getting to taste it all.

    Oh Heather, you are very talented lady and I wish I could have been there in attendance. I bet you had loads of food leftover though as you had heaps of food for 14 people, but leftovers are good (for you and your family that is!). So proud of you honey!!<br /><br />PS Will you be in NYC in August? I am thinking of a holiday there (my first time there!)
