C O O K I N G C O R N E R No bake desserts An article by: KRIVONOS, Dasha Think that making desserts in the halls is impossible because you don’t have an oven? Never fear, Dasha is here! I spent my early 20’s working in kitchens and restaurants of different sizes, and picked up a few handy tricks that I use in my everyday cooking life, and I’d like to pass those tricks on to you! Ice box or fridge cakes You can create a lot of wonderful desserts using the glowing heat of an oven, but did you know the frigid cold of your refrigerator can also fill that role? Ice box or fridge cakes are typically mousse based desserts which need to be left to set in the fridge for at least a few hours. A great example of an ice box cake which can easily be made in the halls is the Mexican Lemon Cake or Carlota. Here’s how I made mine: Ingredients: ¾ cup/175 ml fresh lemon juice 2 tablespoons lemon zest, plus more for garnish 1 (395 gram) can condensed milk 1 (375 gram) can evaporated milk ½ teaspoon salt Enough vanilla flavoured cookies / biscuits of your choice to make 3 layers in your dish Lemon wedges, to serve IT Magazine / June Issue 12
