The Sweet 100

Some time ago, someone out there came up with the Omnivore's 100, a list of 100 items that everyone who is into food should eat before they die or something like that. And people with blogs would copy the list and signify what they'de eaten and such. The original list came from someone I think in England or something, so the list definitely leaned toward English and Indian food. I'd been meaning to do it but I hadn't quite gotten around to it.

Then I saw this list from Cakespy. It's the same type of list except for all sweets. This is so much more me. So here's the list. Bold means I've eaten it. Small means I wouldn't eat it (there aren't any, haha). 49/100 isn't bad. You'll probably be seeing a number of these being made and posted in the near future.

1. Red Velvet Cake - who hasn't? though I have to admit I think every one I've had came from a box mix.
2. Princess Torte

4. Apple Pie either topped or baked with sharp cheddar
5. Beignet - mmmm
6. Baklava - I've made it a few times and had it in restaurants a few times... not that difficult to makes
7. Black and white cookie - who hasn't? though I never really loved them, maybe it was the ones that I had that weren't so great. maybe I'll have to try them again some day
