By Leigh O'Connor.

Are you a starter or a dessert person? If you fall into the latter category, you are going to love National Dessert Day on Thursday, October 14.

This day provides the perfect excuse to let your sweet tooth take over – you can indulge in as many desserts as you like, without judgment.

‘Let them eat cake!’ This popular French saying holds true especially on Thursday, when calories don’t count – cash in those kale salad points and reward yourself with a dessert to remember like this decadent chocolate cake by Australia’s Queen of Chocolate, Kirsten Tibballs - founder of Savour Chocolate & Patisserie School in Melbourne.
