What dessert for this year's birthday

Last year, his birthday 17th of Jan, he wanted Boston Cream Pie.
Boston Cream Pie

So in preparation for this year's birthday...birthday 32.

Me: I have a question I need to ask you.
Son: No I'm not gay.
Me: Well it would be okay if you were. I hadn't thought of asking that question but thank you for the information. No, I wanted to ask you what you wanted for your birthday dinner dessert and main dish/appetizers, whatever, so I have time to get ingredients on the grocery list before your birthday.
Son: Maybe beef wellington or something like that. I don't know what to ask for for dessert.
Me: Well noodle around the internet or look through our cookbooks and then let me know, like, pretty soon.
Son: Okay.

Great conversation!

If he can't decide you could make me a pineapple upside down cake with plenty of whipped cream!

What does he like? DH loves Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, so for Christmas I made a peanut butter tart with a chocolate ganache topping. He loved it. He always wants tiramisu for his birthday cake. It goes with the lasagna I always make.

I first tried coconut cream pie when traveling in MO, I'd never had it before. It was dreamy, I was 45 that year.

I don't think Mr. 32 has any identifiable 'favorites', he's still trying things out in life and learning what he likes. When he was little, he liked banana split torte, and sometimes german chocolate cake like his dad, and then last year boston cream pie. It will be a new thing this year, I guess. I'll keep y'all updated.

Any dessert? Any?

It would have been answered more easily if he was just gay and that was your question.

Considering the weather, how about Baked Alaska? Just kidding.

Spotted dick? Wait, he answered that question already...


But seriosly, something warm. Maybe Cocolate Molten Lava Cake? Or Bananas Foster?

What about mont Blanc? Lovely and a bit different?

A really good spotted dick ( a steam pudding with currant, suet, lemon and orange zest) , I so miss that with hot custard, yum.
