March Madness Dessert Bracket

As we approach February and soon March, I’ve decided to put together a bracket of 64 desserts and pair them in a March-madness type bracket to determine the ultimate dessert (at least of 2011). Below is the list I have compiled, but I’d like to hear your thoughts about what I missed. Please, if you do propose to add a dessert also select one for removal and the reason. Once I have a good list I will put together a bracket and we’ll start the tournament!

A couple of ground rules:

1. Please don’t choose some specific dessert from a particular person or place. I’m sure one place does something better than anywhere, but that’s not really an overall picture.

2. Please don’t select something obscure that most people wouldn’t have heard of. I’m sure there are plenty of desserts that I need to try, but, again, not really an overall picture thing.

3. No candy. Yes, we all love candy, but it’s more of a snack and not a dessert.

4. This is for fun, and not money. If your favorite isn’t listed or doesn’t make the final bracket or isn’t seated high enough, sorry. Maybe you should take me to lunch and buy me that dessert to convince me!

With no further ado, here is the initial list of 64 (in no particular order)!
