    Default Cake/Deserts

    Evening chaps... Im sure many of us have a sweet tooth... I certainly do. So im wondering if any of you guys like to bake and if so what is your speciality.

    Im sure this isnt the manliest subject but there cant be just me out there who enjoys making and eating cakes/desserts... Is there?

    I normally don't do a lot of baking and such, but around the hollidays I do make several types of fudge and homemade pumpkin pie. My favorite of the fudge's I make is a white chocolate peppermint fudge.

    The best tip I can give for making fudge is to follow the receipe to a T. Even the smallest deviation can lead to unwanted results(speaking from experience).

    During the holidays I make several types of biscotti, chocolate chip and oatmeal-raisin cookies. Of all, the plain almond biscotti are my favorite. I also cook up a large batch of seafood gumbo.

    My favorite dessert to make is NY cheesecake. Growing up in NY I learned how to make all kinds of foods that are terrible for you, but it is how I keep my girlish figure!

    I used to make blackberry cobblers in a dutch oven for my Scouts on campouts-wish I still had access to all that dutch oven gear!

    Is that a ganache, whipped cream and jam or are you using two chocolates?

    I haven't for awhile but I do like to make peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal and raisin cookies and shortbread cookies. Not really a desert but bread in a can too.

    Top is a dark chocolate ganache then whipped cream and homemade blackcurrant jam. I usually make far more ganache - enough to cover the full cake but i didnt have enough stuff in to make a full batch.
