Summer Seasonal Dessert Tasting Platter

Tis that time again. June Gloom is fading away, temperatures are rising, and the fresh flowers and garden bounties of springtime are transforming into that of summer. No time like the present to take advantage and roll out another Seasonal Dessert Tasting Platter.

Usually lasting 8 weeks, this past collection was retired on Monday, two weeks early. Stop frowning and get with it; change is exciting!

I posted a teaser on two of these desserts late last week. The frozen berries are pretty awesome. Check it. But the real winner on this platter is the new bread pudding. It's super gooey and nicely spiced with the additional of my favored Vietnamese Cinnamon. The grilled corn gateau is very interesting, too. You might be thinking what fresh corn kernels are doing in a dessert, but they offer great texture and sweet flavor that pop with each bite.
