We won't judge if you order one of each

From Miette

It's time to present this year's contenders for Your Thanksgiving Dessert!

Let's start with the show-stopper: The Pumpkin Princess! For a very short time every year, our classic, sweet, & delicate Princess cake is transformed into the lovely pumpkin you see above. Gosh, it's so pretty, maybe we should make it all year. The Debutante, Princess, & Tomboy could be joined by the Fairy-Tale Princess.

6-inch: $35, serves 6-8 people

Oh, hey there, cheesecake. I had Miette cheesecake for my birthday cake two years in a row, and if I was lucky enough to be born in November, I would definitely get the Pumpkin Cheesecake. (Of course, then I probably wouldn't have been able to have all those January sledding birthday parties. Native Californians, I'll explain later.) The natural sweetness of the heirloom pumpkin is perfectly balanced by the rich & tart creme fraiche topping. I know I shouldn't play favorites, but I have to tell you that the shopgirls polished off the Pumpkin Cheesecake mere moments after this photo was taken.

Old-Fashioned Pumpkin, could you be any cuter? A dark-chocolate cake wearing a jaunty pumpkin beret, with a twisting handmade stem & fluffy, tinted Italian meringue.

The Pecan Tart may be dainty it's intense! It delivers the maximum rich, gooey, citrusy, nutty goodness per square-inch, and goes perfectly with a civilized after-dinner cup of strong coffee. Or with slighly less civilized coffee the next morning, when you find the leftovers from the photo-shoot on your bedside table. Score!
