EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Hazelnuts, also called filberts, grow in clusters on trees in temperate climates. The small round nuts are covered in a thin brown bitter skin.

To remove the skin from hazelnuts, place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake at 350°F. for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the skins begin to flake. Fold the hot nuts into a kitchen towel and rub them vigorously until most of the skins come off.

Add sparkle to your dessert party by garnishing this cake with a flourish of edible glitter. Present the cake on a large silver or gold platter decorated with edible glitter which can be found at baking supply stores.
