Dessert included options of chocolate cake with vanilla sauce and dark chocolate sorbet or a sorbet trio.

The White House shared the menu with pool reporters.

The two leaders plan to "discuss global, regional, and bilateral issues of mutual concern,” the White House said in a statement last week.

Attendees included first ladies Melania Trump and Peng Liyuan, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, chief of staff Reince Priebus, top strategist Steve Bannon and Trump's daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, two top advisers.
