What did you get me?
Tuesday, October 14, is National Dessert Day, which, of course, is at the center of National Dessert Month.
Please don’t confuse this with National Pie Day (December 1), National Raspberry Cream Pie Day (Aug. 1), Sacher Torte Day (Dec. 5), Spongecake Day (Aug. 23) or Angel Food Cake Day (last Friday, Oct. 10).
To kick off the sweetest day events, Laurent Branlard, executive pastry chef at Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort, paid a visit to Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer at city hall. Branlard gave Dyer a box of custom-made chocolates. Well, Dyer took the box of chocolates, whether Branlard meant for him to have them or not.
Dyer honored Branlard for representing Orlando as leader of the winning United States team in the 2008 World Pastry Championship.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to get to the Hallmark store to buy Dessert Day cards.
