This is not exactly a healthier version of icing but it is appropriate for decorating a very large birthday cake. This recipe will make about 9 cups or 72 2 tbs servings. It should be eaten in moderation and is actually ok if eaten in servings of two tablespoons which is average on a birthday cake. I first made swiss buttercream for the first time and discovered it was way toooo buttery for my tastebuds so I adapted it into my regular buttercream recipe and found it to be quite tasty.Submitted by KIVALOVESRICKY
There are a lot of steps to this flavourful, vegan pasta dish, but you can do a lot of the prep ahead of time. The onion / garlic puree can be easily made up to a week ahead, and the chickpeas will keep their crunch for a day or two if kept in a container like a cookie tin - NOT a plastic bag! The toast takes only minutes (though it bust be served immediately), and can be done at the same time as the chickpeas by adding the bread tray to the oven when there are 15 minutes of roasting time left.Submitted by JO_JO_BA
Definitely not a diet food, but - like all things - good in moderation! Perfect for parties, especially if you add a little food colouring to either the cakes or the frosting for a festive touch.
Makes 12 muffin-sized cakes, with a generous serving of frosting on each.

This is definitely NOT diet food, but I always make them for friends' birthday and have one myself so as I was putting these on so I can track them I thought I would share them with you. They really are great - they look amazing and they always go down well! The long prep time is because the cakes have to cool completely before you can ice them.Submitted by LOOKSLIKELILY
This is a super-delicious lower carb lasagna, made with zucchini that is first oven roasted with parmesan & seasonings to give it more texture and flavor, then loaded up with a flavorful meat sauce, some healthy greens, and a variety of cheeses. YUM!Submitted by REBECCAFRIEDMAN
