Shades of Yellow at Sugarmill
Shades of Yellow at Sugarmill

I've always had a sweet tooth, and was a baker long before I learned to cook -- or drive, for that matter. So you might think that I like every dessert I meet, but the opposite is true. If I had a dollar for every dried-out layer cake, leaden pie crust and gratuitously sweet concoction I've eaten over the years, I'd be rich. But in honor of this week's review of Sugarmill, here's a baker's dozen of great spots for desserts (in alphabetical order by restaurant) were worth saving room for.
