5. Huge bowl of your favorite ice cream with toppings

8. Puddings or custards

9. Cake

10. Other (I am sure I forgot something.)

Well phooey. I voted before I realized I could pick more than one item. DANG IT! I picked other because I really enjoy fruit and cheese after dinner BUT, all that other stuff is high on my list of yummy things.

One of my desserts that I can never resist is Deep, Dark Chocolate Cake. It is made from scratch and has a rich buttercream frosting. A friend of mine makes cheesecakes of many flavors. My favorite of hers is a white chocolate frangelica cheesecake topped with raspberries. It was like Heaven. My mom and I once shared a tiramisu dessert in a restaurant. It was so good that I could have eaten the whole dessert by myself. There is something about cream puffs that I cannot resist. There is not much to them, but if I see one in a bakery I just cannot resist getting at least one.

I'm a sucker for spice cake with brown sugar fudge icing. Or lazy daisy oatmeal cake. Oooooooooo...just made a carrot cake that was so moist and tender you wouldn't believe it. I should post that recipe. Mmmmm...chocolate fondue with strawberries so sweet and juicy...*Homer drool happening*

One of my favorite restaurants serves a dry Monterey Jack cheese for dessert. It is the perfect ending for an excellent meal. This restaurant is known for not skimping on the portions, so any other dessert would be a bit much.

I can't refuse anything chocolate and decadent. My dh prefers fruity desserts, which I gladly make for him but usually don't touch after they're made.

Well, I voted for just about everything on the list, as I am known for having an extreme sweet-tooth. ROFL, I could never work in a pastry kitchen, as I would balloon out to about 500 lbs so quickly!

One thing, I voted for "Other" as there was no listing for sopapillas. I just love them, fried fresh to order! Especially with that honey-butter sauce that Don Pablos uses!

yoink!!! i thought it was a single vote too.

i voted for tiramisu and creme brulee. i thought this to be an odd pairing to be a group, considering the prep and ingredients, but they happen to be my faves that i order at every chance, and thankfully are on many restaurants' menus.

All of the above and then some!

Come on now. The real question is, "Is there a dessert you don't like?" The answer is, "No!".
