It's Our Sweet Sixteenth AnneSeverosary

You: the sweetest guy ever!
What better way to celebrate then here publicly on Dessert Safari!
You are known in these parts as The Enabler.
As I type this, you are flying home from a gig in NYC, bringing cookies from Pies-N-Thighs. Mmmmmmmmmm. Can't wait!

Last year at this time, we were in NY together and ate our way around the city, as is our want. One of the most memorable experiences was going to ChickaLicious Desset Bar. I don't know if I wrote down what we had, and I certainly can't remember every delicious detail from the photos. So here are a bunch of images, with dollops of text.

sit at the bar, like you would at a sushi bar
you can watch how they assemble stuff
 We ordered the three course prix fixe dessert
the amuse bouche - it involved earl grey flavor in one of the layers
Brown Sugar Panna Cotta with Pink Grapefruit Sorbet and Toasted Pistachio
(lifted from current menu, which "changes daily")
apple cake? spice cake?
truffles, shortbread cookies, something covered with coconut
happy gluttons!

Desserts, I've Had a Few...

Cupcake Safari is now Dessert Safari!

Looks like I wrote only 3 posts last year. This does NOT mean I've stopped eating cupcakes, by any means. I just stopped drawing them and didn't go anyplace new worth writing about. I decided to widen my subject matter to all desserts (like all those desserts have widened me - haha). As was my original plan before I became a devotee of the cupcake cult.

To get started, here is my new favorite Indian sweet: Chum chum (or cham cham)
Per Wikipedia, "The main ingredients are flour, cream, sugar, saffron, lemon juice, and coconut flakes."
Lada spotted it in the fridge at Jay Bharat, our Artesia Digital Goddess hangout.
Must return for more... Sketch-worthy...
