World's most gorgeous / best desserts ~ yummy pictures ~

Updated on October 2, 2011

Everyone loves a good dessert after a satisfying meal. Nothing beats the delicate taste of a well made snack that is full of flavor. This hub talks about some of the best desserts that you can find in Southern California. So next time when you are in the mood for some sweets, don't forget to give these desserts a try if you haven't already done so.

Cream puff – especially the ones from Papa Beard (a Japanese cream puff maker). I love the delicate flavors of cream puffs. The ones from Papa Beard are the best. It comes in many different flavors, vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. Other flavors (green tea, coffee, earl gray tea and others) listed on their website are not available at any Papa Beard Southern California store that I went to. I think these flavors might be available in Japan. They also sprinkle powder sugar on top for added sweetness.

Tiramisu – This is probably my favorite snack out of all snacks. The flavors are just simply so gorgeous; this dessert tastes like heaven. If you haven't had tiramisu, you are definitely missing out on this fine Italian dessert. There are several modified versions, but the traditional one is the best out of all in my opinion. This dessert is made by dipping ladyfingers or Italian biscuits in strong coffee (espresso) and layered with a mixture of egg yolk / mascarpone. Coco powder is sprinkled on top to balance the sweetness of the cake.

Gelato (Italian ice cream) – Gelato is ice cream on steroids. The flavors of gelato is so much more delicate and intense than regular ice cream. Traditional ice cream has lots of air to double the quantity, gelato do not have air as filler. Anyway, you have to give this gorgeous Italian dessert a try. You will never want to eat regular ice cream again.

Cheesecake (frozen chocolate cheesecakes are my favorite) – Oddly, I love frozen chocolate cheesecakes but not room temperatures ones. It feels like I am eating ice cream cake but the flavors are different just by a little bit. It is absolutely pleasurable to eat very good chocolate cheesecake on any day!!

Black forest cake – I love the rich taste of smooth black forest cake. This is a German cake that is not very sweet. The flavors are just gorgeous and every bit melts in your mouth.

Ice cream cake – This is almost self explanatory. The ice cream with the cake is a perfect combination. I love it when the icing of the cake is made of very light cream instead of that ultra sweet artificial icing that they put on most cakes. This dessert is a must in the summer time. So next time, when there is a summer birthday, why not suggest the ice cream cake for the celebration?

Creme brulee – This is another Italian dessert that is just simply gorgeous. With the brunt sugar on top and the cool cream underneath. It is simply a small gorgeous little dessert to enjoy by yourself or with you loved ones.
