A friend of mine wrote on Facebook that she was making her own birthday dessert. At first I was taken aback–poor girl, forced to bake for herself. Then I paused and reconsidered, "Lucky girl! She gets to bake for herself!"
I'm so inspired by that idea. My birthday comes up next week and I've decided I'm grabbing this opportunity to pick the dessert no one else in my family would ever care to try. I'm experimenting with something new because if it fails, the only one disappointed is myself. I can't think of anything more fun and guilt-free to do for my special meal.
The trouble? There are a gazillion amazing recipes out there! I honestly don't even know where to start. I don't usually bookmark dessert recipes because I don't need the temptation. I can't decide if I want fruity, chocolatey, caramely, cake-y, pie-y, all I know is I don't want banana-y.
Have you had your eye on a special dessert recipe that you've been too scared to try? Have you seen something gorgeous and amazing and delectable? I'd love if you'd share the idea and recipe. You can post here in the comments, or leave a comment over on Facebook, whatever floats your boat.
In any case, I'm tossing down the baking mitts in challenge. Bring it on!
