Just Deserts

Dessert is a morally essential part of a meal and often times the most anticipated event. No meal is complete without some sugary, most likely unhealthy course and one would prove to be a failure of a host should they forego this essential portion. Confectionary treats are after all a single staple all cultures share. When a happy occasion arrives or something is to be celebrated, people most often prefer to use sweets to highlight the day. So, it doesn’t really come as a surprise that every culture has its own unique version of just desserts that years of milestone accomplishments, marriages and reunions have seen perfected;
