Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

It’s here. Welcome to Sweets Week here on Eater D.C.

Find this salute to pastries, candies, desserts, bakeries, and more on the site (as well as others across the Eater network) until Friday. Here, Eater will feature everything from macaron maps and epic ice cream sandwiches to cannoli destinations and Indian desserts. Go behind the scenes to see how D.C.’s pastry chefs put together some of the city’s most iconic desserts, and see what the city’s confection experts are up to for Halloween this year. Learn the best bets when it comes to the city’s bakeries, and discover the top places to order dessert around town. It’s a brand new theme week for Eater, and the excitement here is palpable.

And as always, it’s great to hear from readers, too. Consider this introduction post an open thread to share some of your favorite local desserts and sweet offerings in the comments section.

Take a deep breath — it all starts right now!
