My friend does a ramen night every so often, where he makes ramen completely from scratch. I'm often tasked with dessert because I'm a blogger and baker... I've already made plenty of desserts with black sesame and green tea so I want to try something new.
I have taro powder and was originally going to do something with taro and coconut. I already even made taro marshmallows.
But then I remembered that I had bought a bag of kinako/soybean flour some time ago and I should use it... I found a recipe for a kinako chiffon cake but would an ice cream be better? [more inside]

silicone mold at the thrift store today. My guess is it's for making some sort of fruit-filled baked dessert. I'm imagining something similar to a strawberry shortcake. What is it for? [more inside]

The majority of my friends are in medical school and are graduating this year. I'm a baker and wanted to give them all small gifts that are cute/tasty/medical or graduation-related. The only thing I could think of is decorated cookies (I do shortbread or brownie cookies) but any suggestions on shapes? Nothing too complicated, please! [more inside]

Throw me some dessert recipes or ideas that are not only delicious, but involved to make - lots of time required, or lots of steps, or lots of ingredients, whatever. As long as they're yummy and a bit out of the ordinary. [more inside]

I'm looking for some good recipes for gluten-free and sugar-free cakes or similar desserts to make and bring to my university department's weekly cake devouring event. I'm an American in the UK, if that's at all relevant.

When I lived in France, I used to make a super easy, delicious cake for the kids that involved using a container of yogurt and then measuring all the other ingredients using that container of yogurt. I've totally forgotten how to make this now. Anyone know what I'm talking about or where to find a recipe?

I'm looking for fat-free (or super low-fat, like under a gram per reasonably-sized serving) recipes for baked goods that you've personally made and enjoyed. Cookies, cakes, quick breads, etc. are all fair game. Bonus points for chocolate stuff. [more inside]

What are the finest mail-order food goods available at reasonable prices? I'm talking best bread, brownies, cakes, fruits, frozen pizzas, cookies -- any recommendations for extraordinary food at not-exhorbitant rates.

I believe that Bajan Black Cake is a traditional holiday treat. I sampled some last year and was immediately hooked.
I considered making my own (http://www.visitbarbados.org/explore/black.aspx) this year, but am beginning to think I don't have the time.
Where can I find an authentic version in NYC?

Aside from buying the ingredients and making them myself, where would one go to buy chocolate dipped strawberries in Southern California - preferably in the San Fernando Valley? There are countless companies who will ship these to me but I need them for Tuesday evening and with the holiday today that makes shipping, sadly, impossible...

Mail Order Cheesecake? My girlfriend really likes pumpkin cognac cheesecake. Unfortunately, the store that sells it here is going out of business. I'm a horrible baker and I can't find much on Google. Is there a baker (preferably online) that would mail delicious cheesecake to Tulsa, OK?
