   Perfect for a crowd, this refreshing dessert can be made up to 2 days
   ahead. “PAVE” refers to the dessert’s flat square shape, imitating
   tiles or paving stones. If you have time, it’s fun to decorate each
   square differently.
   
   Grease 15 x 10 inch jelly roll pan; line with parchment paper.  Grease
   paper and sprinkle lightly with flour. Set aside. In bowl, beat egg
   yolks with sugar until light and fluffy; beat in lemon rind and juice
   and vanilla.  In separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not
   dry peaks form; fold into yolk mixture. Gently fold in flour until
   thoroughly mixed. Spread in prepared pan; bake in 350 F oven for
   15-20 minutes or until golden and cake springs back when lightly
   touched. Let cool in pan.
   
   LEMON RUM SAUCE:  In saucepan, combine sugar, water and lemon
   juice;bring to boil. Boil for 1 minute; stir in rum. Brush over cake.
   
   LEMON CREAM:  In saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let
   stand for 5 minutes to soften. Over low heat, warm gelatin gently
   just until dissolved. Meanwhile, in bowl, beat egg yolks with sugar
   until light;beat in lemon rind and juice. Beat in gelatin mixture.
   Return to saucepan and cook over low heat for 5-6 minutes or until
   barely thickened; let cool slightly.  In large bowl, beat cheese
   until light;beat in lemon mixture. Let cool to room temperature just
   until starting to thicken. Whip cream; fold into lemon mixture.
   Spread evenly over cake. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 2
   days.  Cut into squares.
   
   GARNISH:  Whip cream; beat in sugar and rum.  Spoon into pastry bag
   and pipe decoratively onto each square. Garnish squares attractively
   with strawberries, kiwifruit, mango, coconut and pistachio. Makes 20
   servings.
