I’m not sure if you all know but National Dessert Day is officially on October 14th. Yes, you read that correctly, there is a whole day dedicated to delicious sweets! Don’t quote me on this BUT I heard that calories don’t count on National Dessert day. I can’t confirm or deny if that’s the truth but my gut says that it’s accurate. Normally, I try to ignore this significant day because my scale continues to give me disappointing numbers but this year, I was invited to celebrate National Dessert Day at the Grand Lux Café which is the baby sister of Cheesecake Factory. I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to experience the entire dessert menu of Grand Lux Café so I grabbed my hubby and we ventured our way to Grand Lux Café for a memorable dessert filled evening.
The event was being held at the Grand Lux Café in Cherry Hill, NJ which has beautiful patio seating as well as elegant interior décor. On the menu for the evening were two drink options, several horsd’oeuvres, and a dessert list that would make your eyes pop out of your head! Once seated, I was greeted by one of the servers for the evening who gave me a small plate of appetizers.
Next on our agenda was a live demonstration of how the bakers at Grand Lux Café make the Warm Sticky Bread Pudding. Being the hands on learner that I am, I got the chance to help make a batch! As a volunteer, I was able to take my fancy Grand Lux Cafe apron home as a souvenir!
Once the demo was over, we took our seats again to begin the dessert tasting! There was no holding back with the treats that came piping hot from the kitchen.
Molten Chocolate Cake with a Melted Chocolate Center, Served with Vanilla Ice Cream
New Orleans Beignets served with a Vanilla Jack Daniels Sauce, Raspberry Sauce, and Chocolate Sauce
Warm Rustic Apple Pie and topped with Vanilla Ice Cream
Key Lime Pie topped with Fresh Whipped Cream
Warm Sticky Bread Pudding with Sugared Pecans and Whipped Cream
And I washed all of that dessert down with a yummy latte!
Y'all, the dessert was so delicious and filling, I had to be rolled out of the venue! I couldn't help myself. I couldn't help but try a healthy serving of each item! That was definitely an amazing night to remember and I can't wait to see what delicious event next year's National Dessert Day holds. If you get some free time, make sure you make your way to the Grand Lux Cafe! The food is delicious, the service is amazing, and the desserts are top notch!
