Expert Tips

Coffee drink syrups are versatile flavorings for desserts and drinks. They are perfect for smoothies and malts, and they make nice ice cream toppings.

If the cakes cool after eing removed from the custard cups, reheat each one in the microwave to 15 to 20 seconds or until warm.

Spoon whipped cream next to each cake and garnish with fresh strawberries or raspberries.
