Cherry Baby Cakes — If you make the mini cakes, you'll have plenty to stash - unfrosted - in the freezer in tightly covered containers for up to three months. Thaw and frost when ready to eat more. Or use the batter to make about 16 full-size cupcakes.
Chocolate Cheesecake "Petit Fours" — While many chocolate desserts are rich, this one is so rich that some years ago we devised a special way of serving small portions; bake the cheesecake in rectangular pans, then cut it into 1 1/2 inch squares (“Petit Fours”), topping each with a chocolate coffee bean. Serve the “Petit Fours” on a large platter and let people help themselves to as many as they want.
