The Amway Grand Plaza hotel's Ambassador Ballroom was the setting for some seriously delicious and sweet treats on Thursday night.

The second annual Dessert Wars, presented by Channel 95.7 and Pioneer Sugar, played to a sweet-toothed and jam-packed house of folks sampling a preponderance of goodies from local bakeries, pastry shops and restaurants to determine the Best Dessert in Grand Rapids.
