Different people crave different things; some love salty junk food; others love stuffing their face with meat; hey, there are some people who actually hunger for veggies -- it's OK, we hate them too. The worst of the hankerings, however, is the desire for sweets.

Even though most of us already know about the highly addictive effects of sugar, there are times when saccharine desserts are just too hard to resist -- you might as well make sure it's worth the calories.

Since today is National Dessert Day and all, we figured we'd help you on your sweet-tooth-satiating mission.

We came up with a list of five places to sink your teeth into something sweet.

The cupcake craze may have faded away, leaving only the best to remain. At this Fort Lauderdale bakery, you'll find a wide array of baked goods like cupcakes, ranging from red velvet to Key lime coconut; cookies, such as classic chocolate chip and Snickerdoodle; cakes; and brownies. It's kind of like walking into a bake sale six days a week.
