  1. My favourite baked treat would have to be Portuguese Easter bread made with a sweet dough with hints of orange through it, each layer has lashings of butter, a generous amount of brown sugar and a good sprinkle of cinnamon. When baked each layer is drenched with a fabulous gooey cinnamon caramel...heavenly!

  2. Anything that is eatable, not fuss. Life too short to not try all the sweets in the world. :)

  3. wow you've totally sold out...shame

  4. trifle-sweet and sweet there's nothing sweeter

  5. Tiramisu Cupcakes - just heaven!

  6. Anything that combines sweet and savoury together :)
    Yet to try maple syrup coated bacon & pecan ice cream ..

  7. My favourite baked sweet would have to be Macarons. I believe their one of the best and most sophisticated sweets as they take a lot of technique to master a perfect macaron. A Macaron is an almond meringue cookie but the best and the Macarons i love are the ones with the slight crunch on the outside and the soft appropriate chewiness in the inside.

  8. My favourite dessert (right now) has to be a fluffy light melt in the mouth souffle!

  9. Dear Annie,

    Fortunately or unfortunately for me, I don't have a sweet tooth at all and I'm still a Zumbo macaron virgin.
