FABBY: FASEC Food Festival

Hello my friends!

Hope you all are having a good Sunday evening.  I have being baking away, as  today Sunday November 11 we have the annual Food Festival, with food stands from different countries and the United States stand caters to desserts, therefore, I made two Pecans Pies, Carrot Cake, and a Dulce de Leche cheesecake, which I will share the recipe as I'm sure some of you might not have and it's fabulous..take my word for it!
 
Anyhow, I volunteer in FASEC, which means in Spanish: "Fundacion al Servicio del Paciente con Cancer". (Foundation to Serve the Cancer Patient); most of the patients are people with low economic means. I will be in the American stand selling cakes and desserts, among other friends, including my mom. I'm posting some pics of my contribution and also some from our USA stand, at the end of the post, plus the "recipe for the cheese cake,"as well.

Hope you enjoy it...just don't get started  with cravings, lol..

Before I took the desserts to the the Cancer Festival, I thought I set a table for tea with my Italian Tognana teacups.

A close up of my desserts. Pecan pies, Carrot cake and Cheese Cake de Dulce de Leche. The recipe is the buttom of this post, if you'd like to give it a try, it's easy and yummy!

We sell them by the piece.

I made a small vignette just so my cake job is displayed in a pretty way. Wish I could offer you a cuppa tea or coffee with a piece of each, but this is for another good cause..at least we can save ourselves some pounds, hehehe

I placed the "Dulce de Leche cheesecake" on top of the larger mercury glass cake stands.

The one Pecan pie is on top of the smaller mercury glass cake pedestal.

I love the antique sterling teapot, as it's a beautiful heirloom from my Fil's grandparents, which my Mil left it to Alejandro.


Here is my baking contribution to the FASEC Food Festival, which means in English: "Foundation to Serve the Cancer Patient." My stand represents the USA.
Here are some desserts from our stand in the actual place. Stripes and Stars table toppers, as this is the American stand..there was another stand with ribs and other great American food too!

My mom flanked by some volunteer friends. I was to busy to have pics taken with me..or more photos of the event, as there were stands from different countries and their yummy food..course, I had Italian and mother had Argentinian. There were also two roads in back of my mother filled with goodies and two on the side, forming a U and we sold everything by 4 in the afternoon. God is good!

There were rivers of thousands of people, for which we were very thankful to the Lord.

Thanks a ton sweet ladies for visiting me, you always make my day!

I will be joining some great parties as well. Very grateful to you lovely hostesses.




CHEESECAKE de DULCE de LECHE

Grind a tube kind of vanilla cookies package; in your food processor, plus 150 grams. of margarine and 1 lemon, the peal. Place this on a spring form pan and spread it evenly with your fingers in the bottom of the pan. Set aside.

I place the following ingredients in my K. Aid, you can use what ever other you prefer: 800 grams. of cream cheese, 600 grams. of "dulce de leche",  3 eggs, adding one at a time and 1 heaping tablespoon of cornstarch. Beat well, until all is mixed together.

Place the prepared pan inside a larger pan with some hot water; now put the cream-cheese mixture on the prepared pan, and bake for 45 minutes. Check your oven.

Let the cake cool completely and make swirls with some more dulce de leche on the surface of the cake, from a plastic pastry bag. Take it to the fridge to serve  in 3 hours, or the following day. I always make it the day before.
Take my word for this...it is fabulous!

Dearest Fabby,
What a nobel cause and so happy for the turnout you all got!
Sorry that I did not react to your entrances for the GIVEAWAY. Thanks for placing the button on your sidebar. We lost a dear friend's son, in Miami... because of brain cancer. I was down as he just reached 30 and was married right before this monster started living in his head. Such a tragedy.
The last two days I have been too dizzy for being up and about. So I slept a lot. Now I'm fine.
Hugs to you dear friend.
Mariette

Elna said...

Wow so many delicious pastries!
Have a nice start to the week.

Hi dear sweetie Preciousa...
I was just too busy and not really felling well with the cold autumn weather in Sweden compare to Philippines exotic one.

I was just wandering around and not doing anything. I don't even have time to visit my dear bloggie friends.

I see that you were busy too but in some other reasons. Wow! those cakes? It really made me droll if I could reach you. I will never say no.

Hope you have had an enjoyable days to come. I am back in the old track again and hope this will last.

Take care, amiga mia. Missed You.

Beso,
/Chie

What a great cause .... I hate cancer. That cheesecake looks heavenly. I can almost taste it through the screen. I would love to try that recipe...I just am not so sure my cooking skills (or lack thereof) would lead to success.

Oh, yeah! This is good eating!!! Your desserts look so pretty, Fabby, and I love the way you displayed them. I have eaten lots of dulce de leche ice cream, but never dulce de leche cheesecake. Man, that sounds good!!! I'll have to try to translate your recipe into cups and tablespoons/ so I can try it. What a great cause to sell these yummy sweet treats, too! Glad it was a sell out! Me gusta la mesa de postres! :-)
