Creative Desserts; Yay or Nay?

Ramadan is very special because of the spiritual value of fasting, but ironically enough, it is the peak for food consumption. Every year food outlets create new delectable, creative dishes for Ramadan, but desserts’ outlets always surprise us with the most creative concoctions. Although some people just want some classic konafa with eshta or basbousa with nuts we still see some desserts that are just out of the box! They’re certainly not for everyone, but we can agree that they’re all creative!


Red Velvet/Mango Konafa Cake – Monginis


Kunafa with mango has been largely successful during Ramadan for the past few years. Then came kunafa red velvet and it was the trending Kunafa dish last year. Monginis this year decided to mix both of them in the same cake!



Red Velvet Basbousa Jar – Nola Cupcakes
