Sweet 100

I haven’t gone through the Omnivore or Vegetarian’s 100, but this one I’m doing. I’m considering it more of a “to make” list. I believe this particular list comes from Cakespy.

Things I haven’t eaten/made in plain text, things I’ve eaten but not made in bold, and things I’ve made preceded by asterisks. As it’s a dessert list, I don’t think there’s anything here I wouldn’t eat…though there are things I SHOULDN’T eat (Dutch baby, anyone? Oof).

  1. Red Velvet Cake (ok, I see the appeal now, but they’re way too rich for me!)
  2. Princess Torte
  3. *Whoopie Pie
  4. Apple Pie either topped or baked with sharp cheddar (many pies, no cheddar…next fall!)
  5. Beignet
  6. *Baklava (made a couple times in high school, would like to try again with homemade phyllo)
  7. Black and white cookie
  8. Seven Layer Bar
  9. Fried Fruit pie
