I liked the look of this cookie, but it was way too sweet. That pink frosting and additional sugar was way too much sucrose. I liked the texture of the cookie though.

Apple tarte tatin – Le Diplomate

Apple tarte tatin - Le Diplomate
Vanilla ice cream, whipped creme fraiche. $8
Le Diplomate, Washington DC

This dessert was delicious! But then I do love tarte tatins. This one was especially good and beautiful. I loved the large apple wedges and their magnificent color. The fruit still had a pleasant firmness to them which made them even better. Noms!

Volt, Frederick MD

Yum, I really liked this dessert especially the berry sorbets. They had so much flavor and weren’t sugary sweet. I thought the little meringues were pretty cute and fun to eat too.

French toast donut – Analog Coffee

French toast donut - Analog Coffee
Provided by Mighty-O donuts. $2
Analog Coffee, Seattle WA

Ugh, this donut was dry and gross and off-tasting. I later found out that it was vegan – no wonder. That just goes to show that some vegan food doesn’t come anywhere close to tasting as good as the original. The latte was ok, and the guys working the store were friendly enough. I hated that their wifi wasn’t working, lame…

Wow, I don’t know how they make this cake or what’s really in it, but it’s SO frickin’ good! I loved all the delicate layers and I felt somehow fancy just eating it, lol! This dessert is definitely a winner in my book.
