Sweet 16 Party

Party like a kid with this all-dessert feast.

Actress Aleisha Allen is turning 16. We figured this Hollywood starlet (pictured opposite, center, with her cousin Damaya and younger brother, Omarri) deserved one seriously sweet 16th birthday party, so we threw her an over-the-top, sugar-coated, all-dessert feast. Aleisha and her friends ate it up -- then they put on the birthday girl's playlist and danced it all off!
