Need suggestion for BBQ party tomorrow
I've been invited to a poolside BBQ party tomorrow. The host is serving BBQ chicken, burgers, margaritas, beer etc...but has asked the guests to bring the sides & dessert.
I live in Cerritos and am looking for suggestions on what to bring. Maybe a delish potato salad or something unique or a dessert. For some reason my mind is going blank and I really don't feel like cooking or baking. I was thinking of bringing cupcakes possibly. Any cupcake places near me? Or someplace with great salads etc??
Appreciate your help!
You can pick up a blazing purple ube (taro) cake from Red Ribbon Bakery. Red Ribbon is a Phillipino bakery chain, and they make some interesting stuff.
Ube cake is a unique dessert (if you're never seen it) and would be a conversation piece. Very mild flavor for such an acid trip appearance.
I found a few examples on Flickr. This one is *not* Red Ribbon's, but you'll get the gist. http://flickr.com/photos/20358768@N00...
