I'm going to a baby shower this weekend and need some help with making a dessert to bring.
I don't really like making cakes... Need something foolproof, easy, quick and of course, yummy!

What about the vanilla slice made with saos?
Line a slice tin with baking paper. Place saos in bottom of tin, leaving a little gap (they swell when they absorb moisture from custard mix).
Whip cottees 1 pkt vanilla pudding mix with cream until thick. Spread over base. Line with saos again (leaving gap). Mix icing sugar, water & tiny drop of pink (or blue for baby boy shower) colouring, spread over top. Pop in fridge for at least 24hrs.

An easy one that I've done is buy mini tart shells or vol au vents from coles, spoon in a bit of lemon curd then whip up some meringue (even easier with a pavlova egg thing) & pipe that on top, then bake it in the oven until the meringue goes crispy. They're really popular!

Another one I like is to get some shortcrust pastry shells (you can either make or buy from supermarket), fill with cut up strawberries and then cover with strawberry jelly. You can serve with cream if you wish.
Also if you don't want to make anything yourself, Sara Lee do bite sized cheesecakes/desserts. Just look in the freezers at the supermarket. The strawberry cheesecake ones are to die for.
You could also make your own mini cheesecakes/desserts by putting them in plastic shot glasses. You could do different flavours/desserts if you want, and then it's also easy to clean up!

Chocolate ripple log. It's only whipped cream and choc ripple biscuits and people go cray cray for it

Butternut snap biscuits. Place one biscuit over each hole in a shallow muffin pan. Bake for 5 minutes or until biscuit is soft. Press into hole to take on slight cup shape. Leave in pan to cool down, then repeat for the rest of the packet.
Fill with nestle top and fill, and serve with whipped cream on top. A slice of banana in them makes them exceptional also
