My top three favorite desserts are Molten Lava Cake, Creme Brûlée, and my dad’s homemade Key Lime Pie. Those are the ones that really make my mouth water. On friday, March 9th, I celebrated my 25th birthday and got to indulge in one of these sweet treats. My husband and I went out to dinner with some good friends at the Cheesecake Factory. It was delicious and I ended the meal with their amazing key lime cheesecake! Since I couldn’t have my dad’s homemade key lime pie, I figured this would be the closest thing I could get. It was so yummy! I have a rather large sweet tooth, so I very rarely will turn down dessert. I even have several sets of dessert plates stacked away in my cupboards waiting to be brought out for a yummy treat with a friend or after a special meal. I have never made a set for myself, however. My mother-in-law recently commissioned me to make a set of six dessert plates for her own mother’s birthday. I am happy to say they are complete and will be traveling to her tomorrow. Hopefully she will get to enjoy a wonderful piece of birthday cake on one of these plates.
These plates were glazed in cobalt and navy crystalline glazes. I love the bold crystals that formed on these!
