Showstopping dessert for group?

TrishUntrapped | Aug 20, 2008 07:26 AM

Hi all,

My husband's company is having its annual bbq - they supply the main food. Employees are bringing desserts. I want to send my husband in with a showstopping dessert, and welcome suggestions.

Thoughts that have crossed my mind include:

1. A trifle-type dessert made with kahlua, homemade brownies, homemade chocolate pudding, whipped cream, toffee bits....

2. A Raspberry Cream Pie... I might have to make two, because one might be a little skimpy....

3. A Cheesecake with fresh raspberries and strawberries on top, lightly glazed...

4. A "Better Than S*x" type cake with pineapple, whipped cream, pecans, etc.....

This basically needs to be something easily transportable and can fit easily in an office fridge.

Any other ideas, thoughts, or tips and tricks out there??

Thanks!

Trish
