I am throwing an iftaar dinner party and I am overwhelmed by potential dessert ideas. Any suggestions?

1) no cookies

2) no cupcakes

2) no brownies

Okay folks, loved all the suggestions. I am making a single batch of baklava and kanafa (standard) but I wanted to add in something extra for those who don't like those choices. I am going to use Enlightened's idea of jelly but I want to do a layer of pink custard, a layer of sliced fruit (strawberry and banana) and a layer of yellow jelly. How do I prevent the layers from blending??

Allow each layer to set (put it in the fridge till it becomes solid) before you add the next layer, and so on.

I was hoping there was a shortcut :( I didn't want it to have to take so long! Guess I should head back into the kitchen :no:

Can you speed it up by putting it in the freezer?

Basbosa is SO GOOD and really easy to make >> there r like million recipes, but my fav is the one with tohiniah bottom gives it a great texture

mini cheese cake (they r great for serving) this recipe looks pretty good: http://bakingbites.com/2011/08/chocolate-chip-mini-cheesecakes/

or aseedah (very traditional for Ramadan)

Thank you ladies for all the amazing ideas and appetizing pictures! I ended up going with a raspberry tart using a custard base because the custard pictures looked so lovely :) I was too busy running around to take pictures but inshAllah if/when my friend emails them to me I will post them up! The whole dinner was wonderful. InshAllah you ladies have a blessed Ramadan.

Edit: I did make the jelly/custard/fruit combo but my brother ended up eating a few of them for sahoor so they were rendered useless :dry:
