I'm making Tiramisu, mini pecan tarts and a friend is making apple strudel.

There will only be 9 of us so 3 different deserts seems sufficient.

We're eating early this year. I'm making an orange sorbet for dessert immediately after the meal, but I'm making my Death By Ganache cake for the sharing of desserts later that evening with friends. Killer stuff, with the dark chocolate genoise brushed with Godiva liqueur then coated with ganache...
