    cocktails and dessert?

    I'm throwing a little birthday party for my husband at a wonderful restaurant in town. The restaurant has great food, but not great desserts. The restaurant folks already gave me permission to bring in a cake or something. However, I don't want to have a traditional cake because we're having cocktails, and the two don't mix. Does anyone have any ideas about what might go well with a variety of cocktails that I can put a candle on? We're going to have around 50 people, but not everyone will want dessert. Thanks for your help!

    hmmm I'd go with something a little fruity. If the cocktails will be fruity. a strawberry short cake maybe? lemon squares?

    not-too-sweet dark chocolate goes with cocktails-- maybe a flourless chocolate cake?

    i like the lemon squares idea too-- the double lemon bars recipe on epicurious is very good.

    mmmm.

    my favorite is a white cake (not angel food...) soaked in grand marnier, iced with dark chocolate frosting.

    mmmmmmmm.

    I think lemon squares will be perfect. Thank you for the great ideas. Now if I can just pull the rest of the party together...
