I adore a pie pumped with lemon curd and sheltered under a layer of meringue!
I can't describe the zing I derived from the lemon curd. Word from the wise, always have a glass of water on hand to wash it down! The sweetness will haunt your pallet if not!

Berries are irresistible! They pair nicely with pancakes, frozen yoghurt or simply on their own.
Blue berries are great but what's even greater are mulberries! Like sweet caviar bursting out sweet and tangy juices.

Gold leaf makes me feel apprehensive at times. Do I scoop it up like a grizzled prospector it or do I prudently save it till last? Maybe photograph it first for posterity... From an aesthetic point of view, the contrast between the Labrador brown and the shimmering gold is simply elegant.
I am still a resolute chocolate cake fan. However, I do occassionally bend my principles...
I adore the white doughiness encapsulated in freshly baked bread. I have to be so strict with myself when buying bread. Without realising it, I tear off chunks of the stuff whilst perusing the supermarket aisles. It is only when I unpack the shopping do I have pangs of remorse.

Toasted baklava in its multitude!
...others infused with shredded coconuts....even chocolate coated ones! At the end of the day, they are scrumptious!
Scones are to England what Desperate Housewives is to America.-a renowned institution.
They are quintessential to the British culture and can be savoured on any day of the week.
A scone without cream is like Batman without Robin. Scones are not dry for nothing. You need clotted cream to accompany it.
