October is National Dessert Month

Ooh, dessert.  It has got to be a favorite word of mine.  October's National Dessert Month so here's some desserts I've eaten and photographed from this year that have really stood out.  All of the desserts below are from local Seattle businesses.  I'm fortunate to live in a city like Seattle where people are passionate about food, giving us an abundance of places to go eat and try delicious things. 

Caracolillos from The Harvest Vine.  These pastries are everything a pastry should be-flaky, moist, sweet, soft and just plain mouthwatering.

 Cupcakes from Cupcake Royale.  My cousin surprised me with these cupcakes recently.  Red Velvet, Lavender, Praline Crunch and the pink one is Dance Party.

 Red Velvet Cake Balls from 3.14 Bakery.  This little bakery in White Center has these tasty cake balls that are so moist and so good, you have to try them.

 The Ice Cream and Valhrona Brownie Sundae with Pear Caramel, Carmalized Bananas and Candied Pecans from Toulouse Petit.  Do I need to say any more? I went there for Happy Hour with my family and the four of us shared this.  We all only had a few bites but those few bites were memorable.

 The Washington Cherry Bomb dessert from Steelhead Diner in the Pike Place Market.  My husband and I had our Anniversary dinner there this year and shared this.  It had a hazelnut streusel over this awesome and sweet cherry pie with caramel and vanilla ice cream.  It tasted so good that I craved it for days afterward.
