Five desserts, five photos, five tips. All just to make you hungry.

 

Zucchini cake tip: Zucchini cake isn’t the sort of dessert that inspires excitement in your guests, but a fancy mold will increase the desirability of any cake.

Pecan pie tip: Top it with chocolate for goodness sakes!

Mango ice cream tip: Plate with fresh, ripe mango, preferably on a purple placemat. Looks great, and the fruit and ice cream flavors play off each other.

Apple pie tip: Caramelize the apples with sugar before you place them in the pie. Makes for a sweeter, richer apple filling.

Oatmeal Raisin cookie tip: If you like them soft and chewy, under-bake them. And always use more raisins than called for.
