Although when one makes a Bracha on bread they do not have to make a Bracha on most foods during the meal, most Poskim hold that for desert they should make a Bracha. Therefore if someone has fruit for desert they should make a Bracha on the fruit. Cakes and cookies however are (usually) an exception to this and one should not make a Bracha on them even when eaten for desert. Some Poskim maintain that one should not make a Bracha on ice cream as well.
