For my daughter's baptism, we're hosting an open house / reception for about 20 people. We're serving small sandwiches and antipasti from our favorite Italian deli, but I'd like to make a dessert. I thought a sheet cake would be nice (as opposed to a layer cake) or maybe something small or in bar form that can be easily eaten out of hand. I also need to make it the day before and would prefer something that can be kept out at room temperature for a few hours without problem. I don't want to do anything too fussy (cupcakes are out!) but I want it to be appropriate for the occasion. Something lemony or with fresh berries on the side keeps coming to mind, but I'm completely open to other ideas. Thanks in advance for your help -- I'm confident that I'll get some great ideas here! : )
