Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To determine if the layer is ready, gently press your fingertip to the layer. If it’s tacky and leaves an imprint, then it’s ready for an additional layer.
  • tip 2
    You can use any vessel to layer your dessert. Wine glasses and champagne glasses make a very festive presentation as well.
  • tip 3
    If you’d like to unmold your dessert, simply spray containers lightly with cooking spray prior to layering.
  • tip 4
    Dessert can be made the day before and refrigerated overnight.
