Dessert Ideas For A Company Party

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I got this recipe from the Kraft Foods website (kraftfoods.com) and was wondering if it would be possible for me to convert this to gluten-free without too much trouble.

Mini JELL-O Trifle Bites

2 cups boiling water

2pkg. (4 serving size each) JELL-O Brand Raspberry Flavor Gelatin

3 slices (3/4 inch thich each) pound cake, cut into 24 cubes

1 pkg. (8 oz.) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened

1 cup powdered sugar

1 cup thawed Cool Whip whipped topping

1 tsp. grated lemon peel

The biggest question I have is about the pound cake. Are the tasty ready-made gluten-free pound cakes available in stores? I shop at a pretty gluten-free friendly grocery store here (Wegman's) but the only sweet stuff I've bought are some of Pamela's cookies (very tasty :) ). I really don't have the time to make a pound cake from scratch so it would be easier if I could just buy one ready-made.

Another question I have is about JELLO-O. Is that gluten-free?

This looks like a fairly easy and not too time consuming recipe and I'd like to make a few different flavor varieties since it will most likely be the only dessert I will be able to eat at the party.

If anybody has any other quick and/or easy recipes that are gluten-free, please feel free to post them or e-mail them to me at racergirl435@sbcglobal.net (just make sure if you e-mail to put something obvious in the subject line so your e-mail doesn't get deleted :) ).

Thanks!

Jess

I think I have seen a pound cake in the stores from Ener-G. I'm sure my hubby brought one home one time and I had it with strawberries and ice cream :P

Our favorite fancy dessert for company is JellO instant pudding, prepared as pie filling, spooned into small individual servings. Then we take crushed cookies (save those not-perfect ones! ) --usually chocolate, and make a layer about 1/2" thick, top with fruit or just pie filling, and put CoolWhip on top and garnish with mint. It takes almost no effort and it looks so pretty.

Excellent on the JELL-O. I thought I had seen gluten-free pound cake in the stores but wasn't positive. I will look again and if not, will do the idea that ryebaby suggested.

Viola...cute puppy. Akita?

No Jess ... she is a Shiba Inu .. The smallest member of the Japanese Spitz breeds. They do have the same determination as the Akita though, so need a firm hand, good fence and constant Obedience training. However they make an excellent family dog if people remember never to have them off leash. They are totally good with people, but could never be loose around the neighbours cat, rabbit or anything else that looks like prey :rolleyes:

Funny...I was recently asked to foster a couple of Shibu's. I had to decline though as we have two cats and a black Lab and honestly not enough time for another pet. They are cute dogs though.

:lol: They are wonderful little dogs if you are prepared for their genetic make-up .. your cats would have been fair game for lunch unless those dogs were raised with a cat from tiny puppy hood :rolleyes: They would have had fun with your Lab though ... mine loves to play with any other canine that's willing :P

well, speaking of office parties and desserts... for mine i made namaste blondies (really good) but i added choc. chips, white choc chips, peanut butter chips, a little flaked coconut and chopped walnuts. they were a big hit with folks very skeptical of the gluten free. my boss and another co-worker told me how good they were and i said 'yeah, and they are gluten free too! they have rice flour, tapioca flour...' and he interrupted me to say 'i don't care what's in them! they're great!' :) so, for those looking for a very easy finger type dessert it works well...
