Dessert Emergency?

Having people over tonight and all you have is some finger-licking ‘gulab jamun’ and ‘balushahi’…Well, that would certainly be good enough for me but there are sure to be people in your gathering who are hoping secretly that the hostess (read, you!) has created something different, dramatic even and totally sensational!

We are here to help! We don’t spend hours doing research for our readers for absolutely nothing!!!…Here is a list of our favourite desserts that can be created in the event of a dessert emergency very, very quickly. Give it a read, then dash straight to the kitchen for a few minutes and then relax…deep breath…and then get ready to be the ‘hostess with the mostess’.

Make some Indian masala chai, flavour (with ginger lacquer or rum) and whip some cream, assemble with chai soaked biscuits and you have an Indian twist to an Italian dessert…via

Hope you get on well with these desserts, especially, if you run the risk of entertaining people who perhaps are similar to Bill Watterson of Calvin and Hobbes fame and shout out and say “I’m not a vegetarian! I’m a dessertarian!” on a regular basis.
