Vegan Ice Cream Sundae Challenge WINNER
What feels like ages ago, a Vegan Ice Cream Sundae Challenge began here on Sweetly Raw. Sixteen of you got to work in your kitchens to produce delicious and beautiful sundaes to share with the world. If you haven't checked out all the entries yet, you can see all the sundaes in this post. As I've witnessed in past, the creativity seen in these dessert challenges is astounding and I was really excited to see what everyone came up with. It gets me thinking about more fun contests so here's my question to you:
Who's up for another dessert challenge in the future?
Do you have some theme suggestions?
My task was a big one - to test all the recipes. In my free moments I got to work testing the ice cream recipes (which I halved). Luckily I had most ingredients on hand, and the only ingredient I couldn't get access to was guava so I omitted that sauce (after asking her if there was a substitute and she said "no"). Most recipes worked out great, while some components didn't turn out quite they probably should have.
There just wasn't time to get it on camera but here are a few little clips.
The ice cream recipe was just one part of the contest. I carefully went over each post looking at the creativity of blog post, theme, photos, overall presentation, and of course the recipe itself (taste, creativity, how user friendly/easy it was to make).
And let me remind you of the incredible grand prize from Raw Guru. All organic/all raw:
So who came out on top?? It was a close one!
Big thanks to everyone to participated and to everyone else who took a moment to vote for the Viewers Choice. Maybe I'll see you for another dessert challenge in the future... remember to let me know what you think would be a fun theme for the next one.
