Sweet Stuff

In a nutshell, this encompasses all the sweet stuff from acero (maple, as in syrup) through gelato and panna cotta on through zuppa inglese ('English soup', actually a layered dessert). Only—just in case you're looking for dessert ideas– it doesn't include sweet or not-so-sweet baked goods, including biscuits (or cookies), and many 'breads' that we would call 'cakes', which you'll find here. Why? There were so many borderline cases that we just gave in and put them all there.
