In Western culture dessert is a course that typically comes at the end of a meal, and usually consists of of sweet food.
Common desserts include cookies, pastries and ice cream, although the ice cream isn’t normally this big.
Desserts are often eaten with a dessert spoon, intermediate in size between a teaspoon and a tablespoon (we’re pretty sure this is a dessert spoon).
One of my favourite desserts is cake (although I usually like my cakes without freaky papier-mâché models popping out of them).
Fruit may also be eaten for dessert…
…but the healthier options can be easy to ignore when presented with giant bars of chocolate.
Some strange people prefer to have a cup of coffee instead of dessert. Weirdos.
Erm… what? Desert week?
Don’t be so ridiculous, I’d have noticed.
