A lovely piece black velvet cake with a cup of espresso coffee is the perfect combo. A lighter textured cake alternative is a slice of New York Cheesecake, just remember that cheesecake in all its glory is one of the most fattening desserts around. Dessert for the whole gang should entail a variety of sweets. A really important task is making sure none of the guests require sugar-free or gluten free sweets. Dessert cut in to small pieces gives everyone a chance to sample the goods without overindulging. A fruit tart and a carrot cake is a win win combination. Prepare a plate of cut-up fresh fruits and the dessert phase is complete!
However, if you feel like adding something homemade to the spread, consider making your own whipped cream. Frankly there is nothing like it. This is a super simple recipe and makes a lovely addition to the dessert feast at: www.marthastewart.com
