But then it became clear that an even larger, sunnier trend was emerging: breakfast-inspired desserts. Some stem from a pastry chef's personal morning ritual, while others are pure like-you're-a-kid-again fun. Whatever the inspiration, we're just happy that we don't have to set our alarms to enjoy these morning-style treats.
