She's pregnant at the moment so her choice was determined by cravings! I made the winner and delivered it to much acclaim. Here we have the -
Coconut Lemon Bundt Cake
(from pg 256, Veganomicon) in all its glory. I lightly glazed it and topped with a tinsy sprinkling of coconut.
Thanks for the driving, Andrea, and I hope you enjoyed your payment!!

So far the only one which has come is the waffle iron, yes, a waffle iron!! I've never had one, and wanted one so bad to make the waffles in Vegan Brunch! so when it came I made waffles for dinner. The Gingerbread Waffles to be exact.
How were they?? great, R LOVED them, and M even ate some (she's NOT a gingerbread fan). I told them waffles could be made in any flavour, so they immediately made requests. R asked for Orange Waffles and M for Vanilla. While M was at school today I made R these Orange ones for lunch, and she gobbled them up. I just changed up the Gingerbread recipe somewhat. I'll get to the Vanilla ones at some point and most likely post the pictures here too. YAY Waffles!!
Anyone care to guess what else I may have ordered?
Here's a hint - they're both also small electrical kitchen appliances.
Wait and see!

Second half of the show costumes -
There's also a "tea" at the end and parents are asked to provide food for sharing. I made these cookies - Chocolate Chip Mint Leaf Icebox Cookies, and Gingerbread Biscotti - from the forthcoming Vegan Cookies Invade your Cookie Jar (follow the link and buy it people). I love being a tester for this - I can make super cookies and smugly not share the recipe while promoting the book! Needless to say, they were loved by all!

2 C Plain Flour
½ C unsweetened Shredded Coconut
½ C Panko
½ C Sugar
1 t Baking Powder
½ t Salt
¼ t ground Ginger
Pinch ground Nutmeg
¼ C Coconut Oil
½ c Coconut Milk
¼ t Coconut Essence
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, coconut, panko, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices.
Now, depending on how solid your coconut oil is you can either mix the oil, coconut milk and essence together in a separate bowl and then mix into the dry ingredients until crumbly (hands are good for this), OR, if your oil is solid you can cut it into the dry ingredients like you would shortening and then stir the coconut milk and essence in to form a crumbly mix afterwards. Either way works – just do what your oil dictates.
Pile on top of your pre prepared fruit layer, store in the fridge if making in advance if you like, and when ready bake for ½ hour at 400F.
