dessert\ pocket

Humorously used to refer to that part of the stomach reserved for dessert.
Especially well developed in teenagers, this allows a person eating a large, group meal such as Christmas dinner to be full on meat or vegetables, but perfectly capable of eating multiple servings of cake or pie.

(Everyone is sitting and commenting about how full they are. Dessert is announced.)

Someone (often a grandchild): Some pie sounds good to me.
More senior family member: You have quite a dessert pocket there.
