Just Desserts

I am blessed with opportunities to frequently travel. Often I am in the Pacific Northwest and when I am, one of my favorite places to meet someone for dinner is Papa Haydn's in Portland.

It started out as just a dessert place many years ago. A few years back they decided to add a small dinner menu.

But the desserts remain the main attraction. And why I return time after time.

Today I received my Christmas letter from Papa Haydn. Okay, it really wasn't from Papa himself, and if I am being totally honest, it was more of an advertisement, but it did come in the mail. Alright, it came in my e-mail. But you get the point.

In it, they featured that great looking Pumpkin Maple Mascarpone Cake I have pictured above. It is layered with pumpkin spice cake & maple/mascarpone mousse and covered with a cream cheese frosting.

About the only thing I can think of to improve this wonderful looking cake, apart from having it on my dinner table on the 25th, is a nice steaming hot coffee latte.
