Today is the day to have your fill of delicious cakes, brownies, cookies, pies, and ice cream. This day is recognized as National Dessert Day. And, it is celebrated every October 14th. Over the years, desserts have changed from natural candies and nuts to complex souffles and multi-layered cakes. The available ingredients affect the range of desserts that can be made in each region. The very first desserts required minimal effort or preparation since ancient cultures were more focused on the nutrition in foods in order to survive. Now, in modern day culture, there are many more options available in desserts.
