Helpful Tip:

Where to Find It: A glass trifle or footed bowl like the one pictured in the magazine can be purchased at a cooking supply store or a large retailer, such as Target, for around $20.

Baker's Tip: Save the egg whites for omelets, meringues, and other dishes: refrigerate them (up to four days) or freeze them (up to 12 months).
