Nothing says FOOD GEOMETRY like these delectable, decadent, & delicious desserts! Which is your favorite . . . chocolate cake, hazelnut napoleon, carrot cake, berry bar, tiramisù, triple-berry cake, peanut brittle, cookie-dough brownie, white cake, red velvet cake, baklava, or dark chocolate fudge? Hmmm . . .
