To celebrate the success of my biggest catering event yet Mr. Rockies and some friends treated ourselves at the D Bar here in Denver with a light dinner and some extraordinarily desserts.
D Bar is owned by the talented pastry chefs Keegan Gerhard (featured on Food Network) & Lisa Bailey. Since opening their doors in 2008 their exquisite dessert and cake creations have put them very quickly in the spotlight and on the very top of Denver’s food scene.
Attached are a few pictures of the desserts we enjoyed taken with Mr. Rockies’ little point-and-shoot.

My dessert of choice was D Bar’s vanilla malt shake. After my tonsillectomy almost four weeks ago, this shake was the best thing I have eaten and enjoyed since. It was creamy, malty and smooth – just out of this world.
