Does your mouth start watering when you think about dessert? Sometimes all you need is a
slice of pie – but if you’re craving something new for a change, you can satisfy your sweet tooth to the fullest with these 10 unique desserts throughout Washington:
1. The "Dark Decadence Lava Cake" at Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery, Ballard, Seattle
The gooey molten cakes here take the word "delicious" to a whole new level.
Pair it with a scoop of ice cream and one of their shakes on the side and you'll be in paradise. They also make boozy shakes, if you're over 21.
2. The "Mt. Saint Helens" at Ice Cream Renaissance, Vancouver
This dessert inspired by our Northwest volcano consists of massive boulders (walnuts) that lie at the base of a honey vanilla ice cream peak, dusted with volcanic ash (cocoa) and erupting with a molten lava (raspberry sauce). The flavor is truly explosive.
3. Bread Pudding at The Gingerbread Factory, Leavenworth
In addition to all of the gingerbread men and house options at this bakery in Leavenworth, you've got to get a taste of their cinnamon roll bread pudding. It's made with delectable pieces of cinnamon roll baked in vanilla pudding, topped with your choice of hazelnut or O’maras icing.
4. Cookies & Creme Fudge at Northwest Fudge & Confections, Port Angeles
This confectionery in Port Angeles makes a number of inventive flavors like Tiger Butter and Pumpkin Pie...but you can never go wrong with cookies & cream anything - especially when it comes to homemade fudge.
5. The "Taste of Belgium Waffle" at La Waffletz & Macaron Station, Tacoma
Breakfast or dessert? Why not both? Strawberries, whipped cream, and chocolate drizzle top this authentic Belgium waffle. They also make a number of other dessert waffles like the Banana Split, and dreamy macarons.
6. S'mores Cupcakes at Frost Bakery, Mill Creek
It was admittedly tough to pick just one unique item from this place when their menu is full of innovative sweets, but this adorably decorated cupcake is too delicious to pass up. If you're not up for a S'mores Cupcake, you might also enjoy one of their maple bacon bars, Butterfinger donuts, or sweet macarons.
7. Truffle-Dipped Rum Balls at Cottage Bakery, Long Beach
Besides baked goods and amazing sandwiches, you can find exquisite chocolate coated rum balls here that will melt in your mouth. They also have gigantic donuts and cookies for more traditional (but just as delicious) dessert options.
8. Creamy Lemon Wedges at Pure Bliss Desserts, Bellingham
Not a chocolate fan? The creamy texture and fresh lemon zest in these wedges can make anyone's day a little brighter. If you're looking for something even more unique, try their Caramel Turtle Wedges on the seasonal menu for January.
9. Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes at Boots Bakery, Spokane
All of the baked goods at this place are delicious...but if you're looking for a cupcake that's different from the regular chocolate or vanilla, they make some unique options like Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes (bottom left in photo) that are hard not to love.
10. Red Velvet Cheesecake at Frost Me Sweet, Richland
If regular cake is just not cutting it anymore, a sweet slice of Red Velvet Cheesecake drizzled in chocolate from this bakery & bistro in the Tri-Cities is just what you need in your life. They also offer a fantastic variety of custom made cupcakes, with over 250 creative flavors like Banana Cream Pie and French Toast.
