10 Delicious and Decadent Types of Dessert  

1. Cakes 

Cake, the most popular dessert of all time, is made up of flour, sugar, eggs, butter or oil, leavening agents (such as yeast or baking powder), and, on occasion, milk or water. For the perfect finish, it's topped with sweet and creamy frosting. 

Cookies, which are made of flour and sugar, are typically small, flat, and round. Simply sandwich two cookies together with a small bit of jam or icing in the middle. Cookies can also be cut into complex shapes to suit particular seasons and occasions. 

2. Cookies 

Biscuits are a distinct category of baked products that includes scones, biscotti, and other items. Biscuits are normally denser than cakes, but their texture can range from soft and chewy to hard and crispy. 

3. Biscuits 

Pastries include pies, cobblers, and anything else with a light, flaky bread crust. They are frequently filled with fruit, chocolate, nuts, or spices to improve the flavor profile of the dessert. Apple pie is the classic American pastry.  

4. Pastries 

Confections, often known as candy or sweets, have sugar or honey as a main ingredient. Candy might be caramel, fudge, toffee, hard candies, or gummies. The most common form is chocolate, which is prepared from cocoa, cocoa butter, sugar, and milk.

5. Candies

Puddings and custards share a basis of cream and milk. Puddings, on the other hand, are thickened with starches like cornstarch or tapioca, whilst custards are made solely with eggs.

Many diverse desserts are produced with deep-fried batter or dough. Donuts are created with a flour-based batter that is deep-fried before being covered with sugar or filled with sweet cream or chocolate. Churros are deep-fried and coated with sugar and cinnamon.

7. Deep-fried 

Ice cream, gelato, sorbet, shaved ice, frozen yogurt, and a variety of other frozen foods are cold, creamy, and delicious. The primary distinction between ice cream and gelato is that gelato has more milk and less cream, resulting in a thicker dessert. 

8. Frozen 

Jellied desserts are prepared with gelatin, a processed collagen protein that gives desserts their distinctive "jiggle." These sweets include traditional gelatin, Jello, marshmallows, Gelatina de Mosaico, and more. 

9. Gelatin 

With its sweet and vivid texture, fruit can also be called a dessert. Mix it with simple syrup for a quick and tasty fruit salad.
