Eton Mess! Simple and seasonal, the Swiss always marvel at its history and then can compare it with Gruyères' famous "meringues with crème double".

Re: Apéro dessert, what should I make?

It's good to use aluminium or plastic trays for cakes so it can be cut into portions. If you're doing the Eton thingy, you could use plastic cups. Usually these things are outdoors + trays sit on the table a while so have a cover you can put over it (eg: clingfilm). I did Jelly once which caused a lot of amusement. Or you could do mini trifles as it's a birthday.

Brilliant Eton mess was on the list and mini trifles are a great idea. Thanks to you both for the really great suggestions.

Usually the swiss normally just bring tarts to these events so making something a bit different always goes down well!
Trifle is great and also chocolates trifles go down well and they seem to love them - very easy to make and they look great!

I often make a carrot cake for this kind of invitation .
With an icing of 90% cacao chocolate.
I consider myself as Aargauer anyway
