We always want to see the dessert menu. Whether we're hungry or not, the selection of pies, cakes, puddings, and ice cream is just too tempting. Maybe something with chocolate. Certainly something sweet. We may not order anything, but it’s nice to know what’s out there. And we definitely want a bite of yours. Share your favorite dessert recipes to win an iPad, camera, or chocolate melter. Show off your sweet genius and check out the brilliant work of your fellow Instructables authors.
