Moon + Stars Edition 2018
Because dessert is always a good idea, Dessert Goals is back for our second fest in L.A.! Enjoy a curated selection of the very best desserts in L.A. for two sugar filled days back to back on July 7 + 8 at the Cooper Design Space in DTLA. Don't forget to dress for the theme ;)
Moon + Stars
For the very first time, we are introducing a theme to Dessert Goals LA: Moon + Stars! Think: celestial magic, constellations, zodiac motifs, space colors, and more! Expect decor and desserts to be on point with the theme, and your outfit ;)
July 7 + 8
Gather the #DessertSquad and convene on July 7 + 8 at Cooper Design Space in Downtown LA for a day of celebration, indulgence and fun!
Honey & Butter is known for their SUPER detailed character macarons that are waaaay too cute to eat. Corgis? Pandas?? SAILOR MOON?!! But oh so delicious when you finally decide to take a bite.
A delicious new take on the campfire classic. These adorable bites are prepared with a traditional graham cracker base topped with a roasted marshmallow and hand-dipped in either dark or white chocolate.
LAYERED PIÑATA CAKES
Puesto is debuting their Layered Piñata Cakes--served with hand-painted chocolate "Piñata" spheres and a wooden hammer, so you can break it open and garnish the cake. This is SO EXTRA and we are ALL for it (expect to Boomerang this dessert)!
Super tasty organic lollipops from Amborella Organics with hints of roses, sage, rosemary, lavender, lemongrass, thyme, hibiscus and marigold. BONUS: plant the biodegradable stick after you eat it and watch the corresponding plant grow! *GENIUS*
CAKE POPS + CHEESECAKE CONES
Adorable and creative cake pops (ice cream cones! unicorns! blowfish?!) from 12 Oaks Desserts will make you wonder if you should really take a bite out of them or just keep them forever.
COCONUT SHELL SUNDAES
Ice cream sundaes just got a major upgrade. Helados ice creams and sorbets featuring exotic fruit flavors are served in super instagrammable coconut (or pineapple) shells!
Not just delicious with tea, these adorable (and gluten free!) cakes are delightful any time of the day. Available in fun flavors like citron, lavender cranberry honey, and nut butter!
CUPCAKES + CAKES
Meet the cupcakes + cakes you’ll want to eat, but will also debate if they should forever be frozen as as art, because Rockiie’s Cakes makes the CUTEST sweets. Succulent cactus cupcakes that look too real to eat? I mean, who’s gonna stop us?
CHEESE BOBA TEA
Cheese boba tea. It tastes as fun as it is to say out loud! You’ve never had boba tea like this before, topped with a rich layer of cheese foam (we promise it’s not as weird as it might sound). The perfect pairing between sweet and decadent!
What exactly are Stuffed cookies you may ask? They are delicious brown butter based cookies filled with gooey centers such as Nutella, caramel, peanut butter, and more! Um, yes pls.
You’ve never seen cotton candy as FUN as this before! Gourmet freshly spun sugar in bright colors and innovative flavors like horchata, churros and mazapan!
These aren’t your 2 AM diner waffles smothered in maple syrup (although, no disrespect) — meet Waffle Jack’s freshly made Belgium waffles, topped with decadent toppings like Oreo Cheesecake (omg yes?!) and toasted s’mores!
The decadent upgrade to your Nanna’s banana pudding you didn’t ask for, but truly deserve. You can’t compare this to what you can make out of a box — meet old school stovetop pudding from The Pudding Truck.
ROLLED ICE CREAM
Super creamy, instagrammable and fun to eat rolled ice cream in bright, vivid colors!
Have you ever had a Crinkle? We don’t know how to explain this magic other than a cross between a cookie and a cake filled with delicious gooey fillings. Kape Republik will also be serving up other Filipino-inspired sweets like ube madeleines and pandan brownies!
MATCHA PISTACHIO SPREAD
Premium matcha pistachio crème spread inspired by the art of traditional tea ceremonies. Literally tastes good on ANYTHING, or, you know, eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon.
Meet your new favorite chocolates! Chokolatta dips fluffy marshmallows, fresh strawberries, and more into luscious chocolate for you to enjoy.
Over the dunk and bite routine of your cookies? Why not try pour, sip, and bite? These cookie shots from The Dirty Cookie make eating cookies refreshingly fun again!
Refreshing paletas in flavors like spicy mango con chile, corn, cookies & cream, and watermelon are gonna keep you chill all weekend.
We just found out strawberry cheesecake toffee exists and we’re having a moment with it. Then we found out there’s also chocolate mint, salted s’mores, and even apple pecan. The toffee upgrade you didn’t know you needed that you now desperately crave.
Rice cakes topped with cupcake and cookie flavors, but with a much healthier base, obviously. Because #balance.
Pies with a cause! Glorious Pies not only has delicious pies, they also hire youths with autism and give them jobs. These are pies you can definitely feel good about eating.
Say hello to cake parfaits, the easily spoonable and transportable cake you never have to say goodbye to. Thank you for being in our lives.
