Parshat Masei, Pareve Condensed Milk and Dairy-Free Chocolate Revel Bars

July 29, 2011

Masei discusses the boundaries of Eretz Yisrael and recounts the journey and encampments of B’nei Yisrael as they traveled from Ramses to the Sinai desert to the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho.

For my parsha cake, I made pareve chocolate revel bars, which have a bottom and top crust of oatmeal and a fudge filling. The top crust cracks a bit, looking very topographical. With better foresight, I would have shaped the top crust to look like the appropriate land masses and let the fudge filling be the bodies of water. I didn’t have such foresight, so I was compelled to roll out chocolate fondant to make the land. I used marshmallow bits to show the path of travel. If you want to see this kind of parsha cake in color, go here.

Here are the maps that the above parsha cake was based on: travels in the desert from Lookstein.org and boundaries of Eretz Yisrael from Tanach.org.
