Tropical dessert

I work at Curves and we're having a LUAU for our big Relay For Life fundraiser this year, the ladies asked me to bring some sort of tropical dessert and I have no idea what to mkae! I do know that it needs o be something a little different but that is easy enough for me to make, some of the other desserts are pinapple unside down cake, lemon bars, fruit salad and some sugar free cake...

Any ideas will be very helpful, thanks ladies!

  • I would just bring a tray of fresh tropical fruits. I would add very very small bananas, sliced starfruit, figs, mangos, papayas, pineapple chunks, and persimmons.

  • A fresh fruit tray like the first poster mentioned would be awesome, and to make it a little fancier, you could dip a few of the fruits in some egg white, then roll them in sugar and refrigerate - voila! Instant crystal fruit.

  • Make a trifle cake. (layered in a clear bowl) bake a vanilla cake. cut into cubes. cake on the bottom. some fruit. some pudding. And keep layering it up. You can put cool whip inbetween your layers too and on top too.
