This is one of those "semi-homemade" recipes that guests always think that I spent much more time than I actually did. This is a light, very pretty dessert that stands out on dessert tables and buffets. Perfect for Easter, luncheons, church functions and teas. Because it's so pretty and something different, be sure to take copies of the recipe with you. ;)
