 This was a bit of a debacle.rs_560x415-140312115328-1024.-after-final-rose-juan-pablo-nikki-harrison

And the final rose themed Coconut French Yogurt Cake almost was too, when I remembered at the last minute that one of my guests–the baker in the group nonetheless–couldn’t eat oats.IMG_5956 (1024x682)

So what’s a girl to do?IMG_6005 (1024x683)

Obviously I had to figure out what the heck I had in my kitchen I could use to make brownies, whip together a half batch, and then cross my fingers and hope for a rose the best.IMG_6019 (1024x683)

Luckily, these were “light and silky” and “a texture I’ve never tasted in a brownie before.” which I’m choosing to believe is a good thing.IMG_6017 (1024x683)

So next time you find yourself in need of a last minute dessert, you too can make like Juan Pablo, shrug, and say,‘ ‘s OK!’IMG_6013 (1024x683)
