You can slave in the kitchen for days making the perfect meal, but if the dessert doesn’t prompt guests to demand seconds, thirds and fourths, you might as well have ordered out. Even guests who tell you they’re on a diet or they don’t eat carbs or they’re too full will remember an outstanding dessert. And if you somehow made a mess of the main dish, they’ll forget it immediately because they’re slavering over something much better.
You can even make your mark at someone else’s dinner party if you volunteer to bring the dessert—as long as it looks fabulous and tastes even better.
