This fall indulge your sweet tooth with a few of these favourite desserts. Whether you can’t live without sweets at the end of your meal, or you’ve got a weekend craving, I guarantee there’s something here for you. For me ,mixing up the types of sweets I serve keeps things fresh. Just ask my family and friends who never complain about being my guinea pigs when I’m experimenting with my menus.

A trippy trifle

Berry trifle is great for sharing. Guests can indulge in as little or as much as they want. Playing with textures and flavours is highly encouraged, don’t be shy to swap out your clotted cream with meringue!


An ice cream bar

Because they can melt quickly, I recommend placing them in a large bowl in the freezer for a few hours. Scoop ultra-hard ice cream balls into the bowl and put it back in the freezer overnight.


Let us eat cake

Of course, it wouldn’t be a column about sweets without cake. When it comes to cake, nothing can replace a great chocolate one. Perfectly suited for celebrating, or as a great weekday pick-me-up.


Individual servings

Creating a rather extravagant dinner? Maybe offer a light, individual portion dessert to your guests after dinner. Remember, you can adjust to a smaller or even larger portion if needed.

The meandering epicurist
