Wedding Brownie--Saturday's Party Week 5


Welcome to Saturday's Party!!  This is the ultimate party food, right?  For my sister's wedding, they wanted a brownie wedding cake.  Neither of them really cares for cake, but they both love brownies.  I said "ok, I'll see what I can do".

I used your basic box brownies, following the directions to make them more "cake-like" by adding an extra egg.  My concern was that brownies are soft and gooey.  Soft and gooey things don't like to be played with--aka: lifted and stacked on top of each other.

It worked perfectly.  They still had enough brownie texture to them, and tasted perfect!  And it was easier for me to work with them.

The filling was what I like to call "raspberry crumbles".  It's the exact same filling I had for my wedding cake, and we loved it.  That's the recipe I'm going to share with you today.  It's so tasty!  and you could easily substitute another flavor.

Posted at:
  • 1-2 bags frozen raspberries
  • 1 package danish dessert
Mix up the danish dessert according to the directions on the package.  while your raspberries are still frozen, crush them up and mix them into the danish dessert.  Add enough that you have a jam-like texture.  Not too runny, but not too thick.  Use as a filling for cakes, topping for ice cream, etc.  Refrigerate any unused filling, as well as the cake. 

Now link up your party ideas!  Here's a taste of what was shared last week, to get you going. :)

Brenda's Canadian Kitchen linked up this recipe for Turtle Cheesecake Tarlets.  Yum!

Now let's get Saturday's Party started!  Come play and spread the word!  The more the merrier! :)
