Providing a special dessert that is not only delicious, but also looks fabulous is the ultimate compliment to guests. It makes them feel they are important enough for the host to go to the trouble to prepare something exceptional. Unfortunately, our busy lives leave little time to slave away in the kitchen – especially with the hectic holiday season approaching! The desserts included here still look and taste wonderful, but they are super easy to make. The best part is that visitors will never know the short cuts that were taken, unless they are shared!
