After indulging in a hearty meal, you're bursting at the seams but when a lemon tart or a pretty cupcake arrives at the table - you somehow, miraculously, have room for that too. Let's be honest: we all love desserts, and who can blame us. If munching on something sweet and scrummy takes the edge of a not-so-great-day, you're not alone. When a craving hits, it's nice to get exactly what you want. So when you're hankering for a slice of pie, nothing else will do. And when you stay up all night thinking of those chocolate brownies stashed away in the fridge, you have to dig in.
