Hi, Candy! What a special cake to serve for a quick rescue - in the event of unexpected company or a recipe to manage at work where you simply cannot bake a cake. You can keep the basic ingredients on hand in your pantry, refrigerator, &/or freezer. You can always keep a basket of citrus fruit on the counter. Depending upon which fruit you wish to use for garnishing the sliced cake, you can keep at least one basket of Strawberries, Raspberries, Blueberries, Apples, Peaches, even Nectarines upon the counter or in the refrigerator as a reserve. I'm being reminded that Seedless Grapes, canned Pie Fillings, Spiced Apple Rings would all give you a beautiful garnish - the main star is after-all the cake. Desperation would allow you to use sherbet or ice cream. This is the universal 'Save-You-Cake'!

Thanks for posting this upon the JAP website. Best wishes to you. I truly appreciate the idea you have shared! Jean C. LOL :-)
