National Dessert Day - October 14

National Dessert Day – October 14


October 14 celebrates that wonderful sweet dish that concludes a meal, it is National Dessert Day.

Desserts can be from a list of many things including cakes, cookies, jello, pastries, ice cream, pies, pudding, candy, fruit and etc..

Over the years, desserts have changed from natural candies and nuts to complex souffles and multi-layered cakes.  The available ingredients affect the range of desserts that can be made in each region.  The very first desserts required minimal effort or preparation since ancient cultures were more focused on the nutrition in foods in order to survive.  Now, in modern day culture, there are many more options available in desserts.  Ice Cream went from a shaved ice substance with an added flavoring to the dairy based, sweet treat, that today’s children crave.


Enjoy one of the following “tried and true” dessert recipes and have a Happy National Dessert Day!
