Wow Laychy this opens up all sorts of possibilities. We had it just as written but can see other uses, eg....topping for pavlova or mini pavs, filling for cream puff cases or meringues. Would go well with some fresh berries or a crisp thin biscuit/cookie. Also I am going to try with other flavours such as Frangelico or Amarula in place of the Baileys. Thanks so much for posting this 'keeper' :)
