that call for CERTAIN desserts just seem to call for company. Take Almond Jelly Roll for example. ' There's a triek in making a successful jelly roll as you know only too well, but once you've mastered it, you're in a class of your own. It must be baked in a thin layer on well-greased paper; turned out after baking on to a towel sprinkled with confectioners' sugar. The paper must be pulled off quickly; the edges trimmed so it will roll without breaking; the cake rolled up in the towel for a few minutes, then unrolled and spread with strawberry jam. Then it must be rolled firmly again and only now is it ready for its topping of Almond Cream Cheese Frosting. Stick slivers of almonds in the frosting and you've a triumph few can equal! Or take a butter flavored layer of cake topped with a fluffy meringue and chopped nuts that's Blitz Kuckcn. After the first bite your friends will wonder what this delicious combination is. The bottom layer is made just as you would mix a cake. The flavor can be plain or varied with lemon or almond extract (I prefer almond myself). This batter is spread in a rectangular pan and the meringue spread on top of it. The last touch is chopped nuts, sprinkled on top of the meringue. After which it is baked in a moderate oven for about 40 minutes. And it tastes even more delicious than it sounds! With culinary triumphs such as these, it goes without saying that your desserts most certainly call for company!
