Desserts fulfil everybody’s craving for a sweet-something in the most creative and delightful ways. While desserts and sweets are predominantly served at the end of a meal, some Indian cultures believe in serving the sweet at the beginning, while some world cultures don’t have the concept of a dessert at all, and others like to top off with light fruits instead of rich sweets.
In any case, who can resist pampering themselves with a dessert? So, always pay attention to this course of the meal. Fortunately, this is not a tough challenge because as far as desserts go, we have just too much to choose from! From cakes, cakes, sundaes and ice-creams, to fruit-based desserts, puddings, cheesecakes and Indian mithai, there are endless options.
It is nice to prepare desserts at home rather than buying them from outside because you can customise them to your preferences. This section will help you explore the world of desserts and try your hand at traditional and innovative ones.
