When James Taylor covered Marvin Gaye’s hit “How Sweet It Is,” he saw his fortunes go from rotten to rollin’ in the dough. Can’t you imagine what he must have said to himself? “Look at me. I’ve got a new wife, I’ve got a successful hit featuring said wife...man, all that’s missing right now is my BFF Carole King and a crazy amount of celebratory desserts!” Luckily for all, Carole King lives on, and the World War II Museum’s, got celebratory desserts out the wazoo at their 3rd Annual “How Sweet It Is” Dessert Soiree.
