    I know that there has been a general food thread in the past, but I am rather a fan of cakes and puddings in particular, and thought that it would be a good idea to have a thread dedicated to such joys. A few contributions to get things started:

    I thought that I should try to revive this thread with some recent baking adventures (not all of these pictured were made by me, but some were):

    Who doesn't? Carrot cake is very tasty. Have you ever tried making passion cake? It's like carrot cake, but more zesty, as it uses passion fruit and pineapple.

    Sounds really good with those ingredients that i like very much but I've never baked anything since high school, i leave it to the pros.
    Forgot to mention your cakes look very nice, a lot of work went into that birthday cake, it's impressive.

    Thank you! Ahh, that was my mother's creation for my own birthday; but baking is a great deal of fun, and really not too difficult.

    Mmmm. The problem is that when confronted with dessert my first thought is not "where's the camera?". These were still behind the glass, fairy cakes for you puddin' types:

    Some lovely queen cakes: the 17th century great grandmother of all fairy cakes, these little delights are made with plain flour and much mace:

    Bachelor's pudding

    Made by a genuine bachelor. This is a delicious steamed sponge pudding, with alternating layers of golden syrup, sponge pudding and spiced apple sweetened with demerara sugar. The sharp fruity apples contrast perfectly with the mellow, soft sponge and the apples, syrup and spices are a delightful blend of flavours.
