D.C.’s Decidedly Outlandish Desserts

Read next

Yum, yum, give me some of those delightfully delicious and wild desserts. Move over snow cone. That’s the way it crumbles, lonely cookie. It is time for the District’s outlandish desserts to shine. We’ve compiled a list of the most decadent, piled high sweets for all those youngsters with triple-decker type tastes. Don’t be surprised or disturbed by all the concoctions the DMV has to offer, we are working on this bi-partisan thing after all.

The Cookie Monster at Buzz Bakery
Got a little Cookie Monster of your very own? Then let them indulge in a taste test of Buzz Bakery’s Cookie Monster. It’s a sugar siege of chocolate chip cookie cake complete with a raw cookie dough core. Buzz Bakery then tops it off with Oreo buttercream frosting and oatmeal cream pie cookie on top for added flavor. Your little monster will be satiated after just a few bites.
