My Top 10 Favorite Desserts of 2011

There was no way I could narrow this list down to five, because it was almost impossible to narrow it down to ten.  I have such a HUGE sweet tooth, especially for anything with frosting! I think this list took me longer than all of my other four lists combined.  I picked the top nine recipes pretty easy, then I had about five recipes I had to decide from for the 10th spot.  All of these recipes are delicious and I would pay money for each and every one!

I hope everyone has a fun and safe New Years!! See ya next year! 

This cake is one of those desserts where you take a bite . . . close your eyes . . . and think you have died and gone to heaven!  I'm pretty sure I told everyone I know about this cake.  I couldn't stop talking about it.  It is such a stunning cake too (I know I need to work on making it round)!  The dangerous best part is that I always have the ingredients on hand!      

#2 Double Decker Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
mmm . . . these could quite possibly be the BEST cookies I have EVER had?  My favorite cookies have always been sugar cookies with frosting, but I think if I had a sugar cookie side by side with these cookies - I would pick these peanut butter cookies! They are really THAT good! 

#3 Neapolitan Cake
This is another one of the best cakes I have ever eaten and it will probably be my Birthday Cake every year!    

#4 Honeybun Cake
This cake tastes like a cinnamon roll, but in cake form!  It is so easy and will most likely become one of your go-to recipes.     

#5 Best Ever White Chocolate Popcorn with M&M's
You just have to make this to know how amazing it is! It is extremely easy and it is extremely addictive.  It doesn't have to be Christmas to make this - Make it for your next movie night - Everyone will love it.   

Out of all the red velvet cupcakes I have eaten over the last few years, which is a ton! This recipe is in my top three red velvet cupcakes of all time!  I love the flavor and I love the texture! 

#7 Soft Cookies with Pink Icing
These cookies remind me of those giant pink sugar cookies with sprinkles that you can buy at the gas station.  They only get BETTER as the days go bye!  

#8 Paula Deen's Pumpkin Cake with Cinnamon Buttercream
This is the best "from scratch" pumpkin cake that I have ever had.  It is delicious as a cake and it is delicious as cupcakes!  It is my go-to recipe for pumpkin cake! 

These cookies are chewy and delicious! Orange and White Chocolate make an amazing combination.       

#10 Junior's Cheesecake
I rarely make cheesecake, because it takes so much time and I am not patient enough.  However, one day, I managed to make this one and it was smooth and creamy and absolutely delicious.  The best part is that it has a cake crust!!
