Dessert

Dessert can come in variations of flavours, textures, and looks. Desserts can be defined as a usually sweeter course that concludes a meal. This definition includes a range of courses anywhere from fruits or dried nuts to multi-ingredient cakes and pies.

This is one cause for the variation of desserts.
