We recently celebrated Gordita's first birthday by throwing a little birthday bash. I made a vegan luncheon for our family and close friends and Gordita had a great time being the focus of so much attention.
I baked two cakes: a vanilla-banana cake of my own creation, with white vanilla frosting, and a chocolate cake from La Dolce Vegan called Wolffie's Cocoa Cake with Chocolate Fudgey Frosting - both cakes were very well received.
I wanted to make a few dishes with a Caribbean twist, in honour of Gordita's Caribbean heritage, so I made maki (sushi) with avocado and fried plantain banana, a tropical fruit platter, and mango berry iced tea. We also had latin music and reggae playing in the background.
