This theme was DC member Andrea's brainchild. So much of what we make in Dessert Club has a topping, or two, or more - something to drizzle, sprinkle, crumble, spoon, spread, or shake on top of our creations to give them that extra special oomph. So Andrea's idea was to showcase our toppings - those unsung, minimalist ingredients that make something sweet, something extra-special.
