This Filipino Desserts page will give you not just the popular desserts like Leche Flan, Eggpie, Yema and Polvoron ...

Let's mix it up with favorites like Macaroons, Food for the Gods, Cheese Cupcake, and sweet concoctions which are not really classified under desserts but nonetheless, for those with a sweet tooth.

Desserts play a very important role in every meal. It's the 'finale', the culmination of the feast, and sometimes the highlight of the buffet spread.

A party's dessert selection could make or break the event's success that's why it is as important as the main entree.

In selecting your dessert line-up(should you require more than a couple), it is important to consider your guests' age -- kids prefer cookies and colorful finger foods, sex -- focus more on the women since men are not usually big on desserts, race -- if you have mixed race guests, better not to do an all native delicacy spread.

Nonetheless, your safest bet is the leche flan -- that's why it's ever present in any Filipino gathering.
