Dessert In The Desert

My friend Rene' invited me to Dessert In The Desert, a fundraising event for Cakes For Causes. It was held at Cafe' 54 on Pennington Street in downtown Tucson.

It was a dessert buffet featuring the five most requested treats made by Cakes For Causes.

The desserts included Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes, Orange Dreamsicle Cookies (made with Tang, the orange drink powder), Cayenne Pepper Brownies (spicy little suckers), Magic Bars, and Margarita Cupcakes.

Everything was delicious and it was a fun outing. While I was downtown, I shot a few photos while I walked from Cafe' 54 to my car. Consider it a bonus for your viewing pleasure.

You're welcome.

I tried to get fancy with this photo.
Tried being the operative word...

They really are magic... after I ate one, it disappeared

Here's my plate, a couple of bites in

Walking back to my car, I passed a Federal Building downtown
where you go if you need to file bankruptcy

I don't know what company is in this building
but it's kind of cool looking

This building was renovated by Weiner and Schwabe
which are also the names of one of my favorite foods
and Schwabe is my boss's last name.

Here's a SunLink train stop.
Fun fact: This train doesn't make a choo choo noise.
