What is the all-time
greatest dessert
you ever have served?

“For an after-hours event at the Radiology Show of North America, we wheeled out a huge, dark-chocolate-frosted yellow cake in the shape of the sponsor’s newest product. The ooooh’s were audible.”

“I arranged a Mardi Gras gala for the Mental Health Association at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, and the staff served miniature chocolate carnival masks over a trio of dessert items dotted with fresh berries and drizzled with crème Anglaise. There were more than 550 guests, and they were all delighted!”

“At a corporate anniversary this spring, we’re serving a buffet of Krispy Kreme doughnuts, warmed tableside and topped with vanilla ice cream, a drizzle of chocolate, a dollop of whipped cream, nuts and a maraschino cherry. It’s not high-brow, and it’s certainly not low-cal, but it’ll be the hit of the party.”
