On the last week of each December I go through all my Sugar Rush posts from the year and think, sheeeesh we ate so many sweets this year! And then I cross my fingers and hope for no cavities. I've been Sugar Rush-ing since 2007, and only in a city like New York could you do this and never repeat a single dessert. From marshmallow apples oozing liquid caramel to decadent red velvet cakes and whisper light coconut cakes to gigantic, golden honey toast, desserts seem to only get better and even more delicious with each passing year.
