I remember the dessert place. Sadly, it’s no longer around. But it was fun and addictive hang out.

Got to be the Rich’s Coconut Cake at Incredible Southern Poundcakes in Stockbridge. They are the only baking in Metro Atlanta that makes this amazing coconut cake. They have the Rich’s receipe and make to perfection. If you grew up in Atlanta with Rich’s bakery you will be glad to know their receipes live on.

Carrot Cake from Piece of Cake is damn good…and the Orange Cake is the real deal, too.

Also, the crepes at Au Rendez Vous (Windsor Pkwy, Brookhaven) will knock your socks off.

The Bread Pudding with White Chocolate Sauce at Feast hands down. My mouth is watering thinking of it. The warm Lemon custard cake at Cafe Lily is a respectable second place!

By far, the #1 dessert is the ‘RED VELVET CHEESECAKE’at Cheesecake Factory. This is their newest cheesecake and by far, the best!! You will hurt yourself…

ALL their desserts are AMAZING, but the seasonal PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE at Caper’s in Kennesaw is unbelievable. We get it every chance we have during October-December. All desserts are hand made in the kitchen. Try this place out…it is so good we had it for our rehearsal dinner.

Sugar Cakes at Marietta Square… their desserts are artwork, and absolutely delish too. The lemon merangue tart is my favorite. You can special order any of the desserts in petit four size too, perfect for a special event.

Well, we’ve covered a) my house and b) Publix, now we just need someone to recommend a place in Valdosta or Chattanooga to complete the triumvirate of dumb replies that always crop up in these discussions.

My dad makes something called a BBQ-gasm for desert. Basically, its a pile of his sweet bbq mixed just right w/ a bunch of vinegar based sauce and whipped into a delictable shake. He always says, if you ain’t moanin’ within 2 sips, he ain’t done his job. In all honesty, it is just amazing.

No doubt, Cafe Intermezzo $7 a slice cakes are definitely worth getting. Everytime I go their I am so amazed at the array desserts, it’s always so hard to choose what to get. Whole Foods also has awesome desserts, especially the cookies.
