Dessert vs Afters

Hi Everyone,

I'm a little concerned about if these two words (Dessert and Afters) are just synonyms or if there might be any difference? Because I used to listen to people asking for a dessert not in the other way.

Please, don’t hesitate to correct my grammar mistakes.

    This may depend on where you have been.

    To my knowledge, we don't say "afters" in American English. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary identifies afters as "British".
