I have to admit to doing sweet in a big way. My favourite course of most meals is pudding, and I especially love to bake.

So I was a bit spoilt for choice when it came to this challenge. Here is a picture of my most recent batch of, nicely sweet, cupcakes - baked for my daughter's recent 24th birthday.

But I have added a bit more of my baking, and a favourite example of a good pudding, or two,

Another birthday cake - a bit bigger this time -


And i love decorating the Christmas Cake -

Christmas cake

It is a mother/daughter bonding thing we bake it together and ice it together!)

And here is a favourite pudding, or two -

lemon merigue

That was lemon meringue pie with ice cream, from a favourite local café. Whereas this -

A pudding worth photographing!

is probably the most artistic pudding I've ever eaten - from the Hilton on Park Lane in London, where I attended a rather grand awards ceremony. It was described as 'chocolate and green tea fondant with a mint ice-cream' - I wasnt the only person to take out the camera before dipping in with the spoon, either.


Your cakes always make me smile--they're just so beautiful!

I especiallly liked the Christmas cake the first time I saw it, but "Smaug" takes the cake--and I'm not going to ask pardon for the pun!
Thank you so much.

Smaug was fun to make - I did offer to make it a proper Smaug red but she said she preferred green.
I want a dragon cake! (It's awesome.)
Thank you - it was really fun to make. Actually there are pictures of it in progress.
I love when a dessert looks beautiful as well as tastes it. I'm eating far fewer desserts than I used to, but I'm certainly enjoying the ones I do.
I guess there might be more pleasure when you have to make them a rare treat.
