I wish I knew what was inside this lovely green apple dessert! Is it a cake? An actual apple? some sort of pastry or bean paste? Mochi? I want to eat it no matter what!
At first I thought this looked like the world's fanciest doorstop or something but then I started drooling and realized that my brain knew it was awesome food so why couldn't the rest of me figure it out? The only way to eat such a fancy dessert is in the tiniest nibbles possible. You have to be careful not to compromise the structural integrity of the stack.
I tried to be haughty about desserts in jars and how it's such an obnoxious fad like taxidermy in bars and guys who ride bikes and grow beards. But then I had an amazing goat cheese and berry mousse in a jar and changed my mind. Put it all in a jar! All of it! I take it back! Jars are charming and it could probably be scientifically proven that they make food taste 25% better.
Nothing says love like a heart shaped dessert delicately dusted with cocoa powder. Sadly, I fear cocoa powder as it seems inevitable that I will accidentally breathe some of it in when I take the first bite and then I'll cough all crazy and destroy everything. How I wish I could enjoy a dusted treat.
Tired of the endless parade of latkes and sufganiyot? It would be nice to have something that isn't fried for a change, These festive marshmallows are seasonally appropriate and a sweet respite from a diet of miracle oils. Of course they're still solid sugar, no one said the holidays needed to be healthy!
