A Tempting Dessert Photo Essay

So right now I’m on a “wedding diet.” I say “diet” in parenthesis because it’s not a real only eat grapefruit or obsessively count calories type diet. I don’t believe in those. This more of a “Go to the gym a lot and try not to eat sugary and fried crap or drink any beer diet.” Which is easier I guess, but also really hard because I love beer.

I also really love dessert, and forsaken it is really hard. Last night I was going through some pictures on flickr and all of the ghosts of desserts past kept leaping out at me like long lost friends. So, since I can’t have any dessert, I thought I would let you guys share in the torture with some of my favorite sweet shots from around the world.

Best ice cream in the world, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Hand blown sugar rooster, Chengdu, China


Home-made peach cake, Tuscany, Italy
