Well...Dessert Fest 2010 was absolutely amazing.  For those of you who don't know what it is, I was invited by my friend Mai to co-chef DESSERT FEST 2010!  Mai learned how much I loved desserts while we were in Namibia and I would squeal at the sight of a pink cookie at a german bakery, or ooh and ahhh over a passionfruit mousse in the middle of Sossusvlei.  Mai and her friend Josh hosted the party last year and it was a success.  I was very excited to be a part of TEAM DESSERT FEST 2010! this year.
You can click on the individual links below to recipes on my blog for what I made for dessert fest.

There was a whole lot of this:

Mixing batter

A little bit of salt adds a whole lot of yum!

Cookies for snack

Walnut meal

Chocolate Tart with Hazlenut Crust

Smores Brownies

The cookie plate! by Josh

A superb strawberry shortcake by Josh

Another big hit of the night - key lime cheesecake!


Some of Mai's delicious, home made ice cream


Rugelach (Paul)

Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle (Mai)

Pumpkin Scuffin (me).  Scuffin = muffin scone combined

Yellow Buttermilk Cupcakes with Swiss Merengue Buttercream

Tiramisu (Josh)

Rasa Malai

Devil's Food Cake (Josh)

We lost count, but I think we used about 4 cartons of eggs, at least 6 packages of butter, and close to 10 pounds of sugar.  AND ALL THE WEEKEND BEFORE HALLOWEEN!

All in all, DESSERT FEST 2010! was a great success.  Everyone had a great time (or a sugar rush) and the co-chefs all had a blast cooking together!
