Despite this let down, I charged in like a house on fire, and invited a few people over for "a quick cup of birthday-coffee" yesterday. Now, as you might know, me and Micke eat paleo, so I was a little unsure of how to make a birthday cake that
- didn't contain flour
- didn't contain 'normal' sugar
- still was good to eat
- is cheap and fast to make
If you use ground vanilla powder, and use honey instead of sugar, then the panna cotta itself is paleo. I know some of you paleo-people don't like using milk, but we do. And, since panna cotta need something else that's also 'sweet' to go with it, I took and put cut fruits in the glasses I made the panna cottas in. I managed to get physalis-berries and strawberries for just 2 euros at the open air market - what a triump! Total price of cake was 7,25 euros, mainly because I had to buy lactose free cream and some more gelatin powder.
|I decorated them with a '29', using sprinkled coco powder. Micke's 'cake' piece is the one in the martini glass.|
|Tadaa! 'Cake' assembled.|
