One of the most alluring things about sugar laden treats is the fact that they are usually very pleasing to the eye. It's almost impossible to walk past a display of pastries like this without stopping for a closer look.

When I recently set out to make a Birthday Cake for my Daughter
(lover of all things sweet, especially chocolate)
my goal was to make something visually stunning
to prove that being Fructose Free can be fun and flavorsome.
I am very proud to share with you my
Neapolitan Ice Cream Cup Cake Creation!
|Inspired by memories of The Cheesecake Shop fare I made a strawberry version by topping it with sliced strawberries (while still in the baking tin) and then making a jelly using warm water (about 1/2 cup), 2 tspns gelatine that has been dissolved in a small amount of the water and about 1/4 cup of dextrose. Color (a drop or two of red food coloring) and flavor to taste. ( I used rose water because I don't have strawberry essence) When jelly is cool but not yet set pour carefully over the strawberries and place in fridge to set.|
The basic cheesecake is very delicious especially the cooked base made with coconut and almond flakes.
For those of you who prefer something crunchy.
Here are photos of two more recipes from David's book that I recommend.
I often wonder if more people would be convinced to give the Quit Plan
a go if the recipes in the book had color photos of the recipes in it.
My guess it would make the book more expensive and possibly seem less credible.

|Anzac Biscuits (my husband's all time favorite)|
Finally, I would like to share with you a very special treat that was knitted by my clever daughter.
The perfect gift for a reformed sugar addict.....Or is it?
