We recently celebrated Shavuot...basically, foodwise, it is mostly dairy products.
This holiday the kids converged all at once at home. I had made some dairy cakes for the occasion.

Icebox Cream Cake:

A no bake Cheese Cake...here without the topping

And with the topping:

Then cause it happened to be my eldest birthday,  I made a checkerboard cake cause he used to love those.

I had quickly put the cake together and instead of using regular frosting I tried something new for me.  I tried chocolate ganache.  It was an experience.  I put it all together and put the birthday cake into the fridge to set and went off to take a little nap before everyone got here.  When I woke up not two hours later this is what I found:

Oh well.  I guess that means that it was good.  Lesson learned.  Put up a sign next time.lol.  I usually have something for them to nibble on til real food time.  They thought that since it wasn't a cheese cake it was ok.
Thank you for looking and I hope to sometime get a pic of another checkerboard cake.

I actually think that in a proper food pyramid cheesecake would be the bottom.  Cheesy Too bad we didn't get to see the other cake. I hate when people eat something I made without bothering to ask. I left some garlic bread in our community kitchen one night because I couldn't carry it and the leftover spaghetti at the same time. I came down a few hours later and there was one piece left. After dinner was over there had been more than half of a (round) loaf!

Thank you !  No HSG, I didn't know that cheese cake is a food group.
I'm going to have to learn to take better pictures.  The cream cake was taken home by one of my kids whole...lol..he hid it in the fridge so no one saw it then asked if he could have it (his favorite).  It's actually made with sour cream.  The left over cheese cake another kid took home and you can see what happened to the checkerboard cake.
Thanks Brenda,  I put on too much cranberry topping cause one of the kids likes it so much.
hngoodlett,  I know what you mean about the food disappearing.  I have no one but myself to blame.  I noticed after I posted that you can just see the edge of the red box of pastries that I bought for the kids munchies...lol..needless to say that disappeared too.  Hearty eaters my bunch.
