We do not discriminate when it comes to dessert. Cakes, cookies, bars, truffles… they’re ALL welcome at our dessert table. We will say, however, that when we seek to really impress or celebrate something very special, we land firmly in the “more is more” camp. Why go easy when you could go BIG? One of our favorite ways to do this is to whip up a multi-layered masterpiece that has tons of flavor and is sure to impress. Check out our 26 Layered Desserts to see what it’s all about, then get creative and start adding layers to all your favorite treats. The best part? The layered desserts guarantee the perfect bites every time.
When you hear the word “diapers” you might think of A LOT of steps and ingredients. It’s true, some traditional layered desserts take a little more effort than the average sweetness, but not all of them! If you’re looking for something to show off your skills, you can’t go wrong with our tiramisu, Napoleon cake, walnut and pistachio baklava, or Cheesecake Factory Oreo imitation cheesecake. They will wow those you serve them to.
If you want something simpler, don’t worry, some of the most famous layered desserts are actually the simplest. Take ice cream cakes, for example. All you need are cookies, whipped cream and time to make something spectacular. Trifles or dessert lasagna like our Peanut Butter Lasagna or Brownie Lasagna are other great options that follow a similar concept. It’s all about assembly, so have fun with it.
If you’re looking for something in the middle, try a bar or an ice cream cake. Many of our recipes, like our Strawberry Ice Cream Cake, Millionaire Shortbread Bars, Oreo Cheesecake Bars, or Baked Alaska, use a blend of store-bought and homemade ingredients with great effect.
