    Does anybody have any cake? White chocolate with dark chocolate ganache filling and chocolate mousse frosting would be perfect.

    But I'm not picky. A sweet potato cheesecake with toasted pecan crust, vanilla cream icing, and caramel icing would do in a pinch.

    If things get really desperate, I could settle for Madagascar vanilla gelatto with triple dark chocolate (90% cacao, please - fair-trade Java, of course) cookie dough.

    *Looks in cupboard*

    In terms of sugary things I've got strawberry lemon sherbet sweets with incorporated whistle.

    That's the lot.

    Unless you count ketchup.

    Hey JoyBoyToy79, I highly recommend for you to go to the Whole Foods Market located on "M" Street NW between 14th Street and 15th Street NW. I used to go to that Whole Foods to purchase Dark Chocolate Ganache Cake, when I resided in the Thomas Circle NW area of Washington DC. - Cheers, Mauricio

    You have those in the cupboard, eh? (looks up Sherbet on wikipedia)

    OH!!!! See, here in the US Sherbet is... well, frozen! But, uhm, still, fizzy watery stuff isn't really what I had in mind. Thanks anyway!

    That looks delicious. Have some to my house in a couple mins, eh?

    usnavyguy, if you would be so kind as to pick some up for me... and then strip down to nothing at let me eat it off your bare chest... that would just be just, wow. *drools* DAMNIT! Now I'm horny and in a sugar fit!

    For the lazy people, Marie Callender's Razzleberry Pie is one of the best frozen desserts. All my friends love it.

    You know... Swedish apple cake is one of my faves. Especially if we altar the recipe a bit (just a bit) and add a whole bunch of caramel, and walnuts, and chocolate chips. You have all of that, right? :tongue:

    What exactly is a Razzleberry??

    That looks good... but... uhm, exactly what is it?

    Walnuts and apples only I'm afraid. However, I do have all the makings of an apple pie. Will that do?

    Do you happen to have any cheddar?!

    That sounds... moderately tart. Don't get me wrong, tart is good, but right this minute, I want sweet!

    Haven't tried it, but I have to now! I normally make caramel apple pie... but if there were caramels here I would eat them. Possibly BEFORE they made it into the pie:rolleyes:

    I shall not be delivered into temptation by this evil talk of pies:tongue:

    We are having company for dinner on Saturday and I'm planning on making a mixed berry Pavlova!
    Pavlova
    4 extra-large egg whites, at room temperature
    Pinch kosher salt
    1 cup sugar
    2 teaspoons cornstarch
    1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    Sweetened Whipped Cream, recipe follows
    1/2 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
    1/2 pint fresh blueberries
    1/2 pint fresh raspberries
    Triple Raspberry Sauce, recipe follows
    Directions
    Preheat the oven to 180 degrees F.

    Place a sheet of parchment paper on a sheet pan. Draw a 9-inch circle on the paper, using a 9-inch plate as a guide, then turn the paper over so the circle is on the reverse side. (This way you won't get a pencil mark on the meringue.)

    Place the egg whites and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Beat the egg whites on high speed until firm, about 1 minute. With the mixer still on high, slowly add the sugar and beat until it makes firm, shiny peaks, about 2 minutes.

    Remove the bowl from the mixer, sift the cornstarch onto the beaten egg whites, add the vinegar and vanilla, and fold in lightly with a rubber spatula. Pile the meringue into the middle of the circle on the parchment paper and smooth it within the circle, making a rough disk. Bake for 1 1/2 hours. Turn off the oven, keep the door closed, and allow the meringue to cool completely in the oven, about 1 hour. It will be crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.

    Invert the meringue disk onto a plate and spread the top completely with sweetened whipped cream. Combine the strawberries, blueberries and raspberries in a bowl and toss with about 1/2 cup of raspberry sauce, or enough to coat the berries lightly. Spoon the berries carefully into the middle of the Pavlova, leaving a border of cream and meringue. Serve immediately in large scoops with extra raspberry sauce.

    Sweetened Whipped Cream:

    1 cup cold heavy cream
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    Whip the cream in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment (you can also use a hand mixer). When it starts to thicken, add the sugar and vanilla and continue to beat until firm. Don't overbeat!

    Yield: 1 cup

    Triple Raspberry Sauce:

    1 half-pint fresh raspberries
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 cup seedless raspberry jam (12-ounce jar)
    1 tablespoon framboise liqueur
    Place the raspberries, sugar and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer for 4 minutes. Pour the cooked raspberries, the jam, and framboise into the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade and process until smooth. Chill.

    Dinner is at eight dessert should be served around 10:00!
