Celebrating the wacky and fun day can bring tons of enjoyment. That’s why we are planning on making every day a holiday. Here are a few Fun Ways to Celebrate National Dessert Day!

What is National Dessert Day? Well, National Dessert Day is the day to indulge in that sweetness you would normally eat after a meal. This includes donuts, cakes, cookies, jello, pastries, ice cream, pies, pudding, trifles, candy, fruit and more! I’m not sure if there is a goal for the day in mind besides promoting the men and women who create and prepare yummy desserts for us to enjoy and indulge in!  National Dessert Day falls October 14th annually. Since we feel very strongly about desserts, it’s one of our favorite October Holidays, and we can’t think of a better day to show our appreciation for the baker’s in our lives!
