PHOTOS: A treat for your sweet tooth this National Dessert Day

Dessert is derived from the French word 'desservir' which means to 'remove what has been served'. It meant a meal to be served once all other dishes had been cleared from the table. Around 15th century however, it was noticed that a lot of chefs started adding a lot of sugar to their savouries. Celebrated annually on October 14, and popularised as a special American day, National Dessert Day is a day for everyone to satiate their sweet tooth and enjoy the dessert of their choice. Some popular American desserts are Boston Creme Pie, Key Lime Pie, Baked Alaska, Banana Split, Marionberry Pie and cheesecakes.
