America has a sweet tooth. I dare anyone to try and contradict that statement. Just look at these desserts from eras past. All of them are classic confections, and some of them are still being replicated and reinvented in home cooks' kitchens across the 50 states. Sometimes you have to stick with the tried and true treats for a truly sweet experience.
