The Sweet One Hundred

I stumbled across this on Culinary Concoctions by Peabody, which linked me to Cakespy. Basically it is a list of 100 sweet foods you should eat before you die! I haven't read through the list yet, but I'm sensing I may be seriously disadvantaged being Australian- I don't think I would have heard of quite a few things. Anyway, this is how it works:

1) Copy this list into your site, including the instructions!
2) Bold all of the sweets you’ve eaten!
3) Cross out any of them that you’d never ever eat.
4) Consider anything that is not bold or crossed out your “To Do” List.

1. Red Velvet Cake
2. Princess Torten (What is this??)
3. Whoopie Pie
4. Apple Pie either topped or baked with sharp cheddar (Of course I have had apple pie, but not with cheddar!)
5. Beignet
6. Baklava
7. Black and white cookie
8. Seven Layer Bar (also known as the Magic Bar or Hello Dolly bars) (Again, what is this!?)

Oooh I love Princess Cake. It is a a Swedish cake and you can get it from Ikea. It's a sponge filled with jam and cream and coated in a light green marzipan. Really pretty and very princessey in a little girl image of a princess.

In scanning your list I though how does anyone reach adulthood without eating s'mores? Ah, Australia, maybe it's an American thing. A campfire adds to the experience, but marshmallows toast over a burner just fine in a pinch. Get yourself some chocolate and graham crackers and feast on this American childhood classic. From TWD you even know how to make marshmallows right?
