Hosting Thanksgiving this year? What better way to welcome guests than with a perfectly portioned, organic, Healthyish cake at each place setting?
Long before I knew my way around the kitchen, my Thanksgiving assignment was to make the place cards. I loved adding little drawings and picking out a spot for all of our guests. Now that I’m old enough to operate an oven, I’ll be adding fall-flavored Healthyish cakes to the holiday place settings.
The organic Healthyish baking kits are so versatile, so with minimal effort, you can add quite the variety to your Thanksgiving place settings. Stick to our classic flavors, try substituting pumpkin puree for the butter in the baking instructions (check out our favorite pumpkin cake varieties), or put the sweet-potato-marshmallow combination where it belongs- on your dessert!
Add a spoonful of cranberry sauce or plump, tart cranberries to your batter. You’ll have a sweet, colorful and delicious table your guests will begin to crave with each subsequent holiday.
Plus, featuring dessert at each place setting will remind your guests to save room for the most important course- the sweet finale! Allow your guests to customize their individual cakes, and pass the toppings for an interactive dessert option.
Here’s hoping you have a very Healthyish Thanksgiving!
