The Strangest Desserts.

Cake, Piece Of Cake, Confectionery, Bake  If you ask people about their favorite desserts, you are likely to get everything from ice cream to cake to possibly fresh fruit but I doubt some of these are your first choice.

They are all different and unique.  Some are extremely expensive while others are just a tad more than you'd normally spend but each and everyone is distinctive.

Lets start with the Cherpumple, is a spice cake  filled with apple, pumpkin, and cherry pies, sealed with cream cheese frosting.  This dessert was created in 2009 by a humorist who lives in Los Angeles and whose idea was translated into commercial dessert sold by a Philadelphia Bakery.  Each piece has bout 1800 calories.

Next comes the Sultan's Golden Cake a worthy dessert costing $1,000 and requires 72 hours prior notice for a hotel in Turkey produce.  What makes the cake so expensive is the rare French Polynesian vanilla,  caramelized black truffles, and 24 carat gold edible flakes.

Not every dessert is going to be this expensive.  Over in Malaysia and Singapore you can find shaved ice  topped with evaporated milk after being mixed with red beans, lychee fruit, and green grass jelly.  I've had something similar and it was soooooo good and sooooo cooling.

So many people like ice cream. I do.  My favorites are ginger shower or chocolate peanut butter but there are people who like to make ice cream in a much faster way than the traditional method.  In stead of salt and lots of churning, they use liquid nitrogen to freeze it instantly. I have no idea how it tastes but I did see it made on Num3ers one time.

On the other hand, you could try a table dessert where lingonberry syrup and yellow butternut are placed on the table.  Drops of a sweet stout reduction are sprinkled on followed by bowling ball sized pieces of chocolate that are then smashed to pieces on the table. Or you could try the other dessert of peppermint snow, persimmon, honey gelee, cranberry pudding and anise hyssop all served on Douglas Fir.

If you like candy bars, how about trying one that is deep fried.  Think about a Mars bar, dipped in batter and deep fried to let everything become gooey before eating it.  Of course if you go to Los Angeles you could try a Sriracha bar composed of a rice crispy bar layered with caramel, a chili ganache, spicy peanuts, dark chocolate and  covered with chocolate.

The same place makes the Devil's Tres Leches where they take devils food cake, soak it in a cinnamon infused - cayenne pepper infused milk before adding tapioca pudding and spicy peanut brittle.

Last is a dessert from Turkey finely minced chicken mixed with rice, milk, sugar, flour, and butter before being covered with a dusting of cinnamon and sprinkled with almonds. This dessert has been around since the Ottoman Empire.

Some sound a bit richer than I'd be interested in.  Please let me know what you think, I'd love to hear.  Have a great day.
