  • Birthday cake?

    My birthday is Thursday and I need dessert ideas. I'm in the worst flare I've ever had, so I need to stick with the Usually Bladder Friendly foods. I can't afford or have time to buy Oetker's mix online and because I have CFS/fibro, I need something quick and easy. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I'm okay with some white or yellow cake mixes. I'm a label reader.

    Have you checked the ICN Shop?
    Click on ICN Shop at the top of this page. You'll find Bladder Builder and Bladder Rest, both of which we are finding have excellent results.

      how about a homemade cake? you could do a simple butter cake recipe with a homemade frosting with stuff you probably have in your pantry. add some fresh blueberries and yum. if you have a mixer, even a hand mixer, you can take heavy cream and make fresh whipped cream for the frosting. I use an immersion blender to make mine and it is to die for.

      This is a great yellow cake recipe and super easy:

      can you tolerate sour cream?

      If you want a real challenge:
      I love this cake:
      and it is very elegant

      Diagnosed Jan 2013. Currently taking:

      200mg Elmiron morning and night
      25mg Elavil at night (no drowsiness or weight gain)
      culturelle in the morning
      SLIT drops for allergies (environmental) 3 drops/night under the tongue
      zyrtec 24 hour nightly (recommended by uro)
      Instillations 3x/week: Parson's Solution
      uribel and prelief as needed

      Also took Desert Harvest Aloe (3 in the morning and 3 at night) for a year and had great luck.
      No longer need them, so I only take them during flares.

          How about an ice cream cake. If you are okay with graham crackers, you could make that your crust and then put the ice cream on the top. Sprinkle some of the graham crackers on top and then whipped cream.

          If you are okay with caramel, you could warm some up for the top of the ice cream.

          You could make a crust out of any cookie you are okay eating.
