For now, the pressure is off, it’s not quite time to hit the gym and get yourself beach ready yet. With a whopping 17 degree temperature yesterday, it’s not time to ditch the clobber and head for the big drink just yet. So why not indulge yourself before calories and kilometers join the party again.

In appreciation of this wonderful opportunity, we present you with the best desserts you can find around town this winter.
