How do I make dessert go to eleven?

Throw me some dessert recipes or ideas that are not only delicious, but involved to make - lots of time required, or lots of steps, or lots of ingredients, whatever. As long as they're yummy and a bit out of the ordinary.

I find myself with a Thanksgiving in which I will not be running around keeping several people happy and fed and entertained, so I will have time to indulge myself in some really excellent dessert-making. Something more interesting/involved/complicated than yet another pumpkin cheesecake.
I'm a really good baker if a bit iffy on pie crusts, and have a wide variety of dessert-making-related kitchen tools at my disposal. I don't care a bit about the dessert being traditionally Thanksgiving-y, or healthy, or using or not using any particular ingredients. I just want to make the dessert-making itself be a fun event for me, not just the eating.
So what should I make? Specific recipes are great, just plain ideas are fine too.
