Question Dessert?!

So I have a gathering tomorrow with a bunch of ladies from work. I was asked to bring a dessert (dont they know I'm on a diet!! ) Anyways how bad would it be if I did maybe an angel food cake with toppings like carmel, chocolate, whip cream, strawberries and other goodies?! Of course I would only have a small slice and with strawberries but thought I would bring all the other wonderful stuff for everyone else. Is this a bad idea? Is there a smarter thing I could bring? And how would I count the angel food cake?

I made angel food cake for my DD's birthday and served it with berries and FF cool whip. It was great. I counted a small slice as a starch, my center said that was fine, since it is so low in fat. You could also cut the cake into big cubes, and layer cake, berries, cool whip, cake, berries, cool whip in a parfait bowl to make it look fancier. I would bet that your coworkers would never guess it is so healthy! My aunt makes a good SF free, but not fat free, dessert. She uses finely chopped walnuts in the bottom of a dish as a crust, then whips FF cream cheese with splenda and a little skim milk to make it the consistency of pudding. She layers the cream cheese, then SF pudding (Vanilla or Chocolate) made with skim milk, and a good layer of FF Cool whip on top, and garnished with more walnuts. Not really sure how to count that though. Maybe D,F,C? Good luck, desserts are so tough!

When I was on WW I used to make a raspberry trifle. All I did was alternate layers of angle food, white chocolate sugar free pudding, raspberries and FF cool whip in that order in a trifle bowl (or any larger glass bowl). I would garnish the top w/ unsweetened cocoa powder. I would use about ½ the angle food cake and 2 boxes of pudding mixed w/ 3 cups of skim milk. I don’t think it would be that horrible in LAWL terms.

How about a big fruit salad? It isn't the best time of year for fresh fruit, but you might be able to get some. Fruit Kabobs can be fun and you can also bring a side of fruit dip made with vanilla yogurt. I just got a good pineapple and believe it or not some decent strawberries for my daughters b day party. Grapes have been good lately, and banannas are easy to come by.

Peel and core apples; cut into thin slices.
Place apple slices in medium bowl. Add
pineapple and lemon juice. Slice grapes in
half and add to fruit mixture. In a
separate bowl, mix gelatin and hot water.
Stir until gelatin is dissolved. Once
dissolved, pour ginger ale into gelatin.
Refrigerate 30 minutes, or until gelatin
mixture is the consistency of raw egg
