I am planning my son’s first birthday party, so the dessert will mostly be for the adults attending the party. I’m doing a fiesta theme and having the food catered by Chipotle. It will be a taco buffet. I’m not sure that a traditional cake will go with tacos. i want everything to coordinate and taste right together. Any ideas?

I would get him a smash cake if you want to do that and then maybe sopapilla cheesecake? We had that at my wedding shower to go with the mexican fiesta and it was great!! We found the recipe on Pinterest.

Sopapillas! So good.
Since he is a little boy, you could always do individual “dirt” cups for dessert.

I think birthday cake goes just fine with tacos. If you want to serve a different dessert, that’s great too, but I wouldn’t worry about the cake and tacos clashing.

I made this dessert last week for Cinqo de Mayo.
Combine 12 oz of thawed whipped topping with 6 oz of thawed limeade. Stir to combine. I separated it into two bowls at this point and added 1/4 cup of tequila to the adult portion. Store in refrigerator till set. Serve and sprinkle with toasted coconut.
The original recipe was for Margarita Squares and included a White Chocolate Macadamia Nut crust. We had guests with nut allergies so that as out. I thought about substituting a graham cracker crust, but decided that most guests would prefer a lighter dessert after a big dinner.

Thanks for the ideas! I think it would be fun to stick to the theme and provide Mexican desserts. I now have to figure out where I can buy the desserts. With all the party planning and the fact that we’re expecting about 30 or more people (DH has a big family), I don’t want to make the dessert myself. Maybe a Mexican restaurant or a grocery store would be a good place to look?
