Identify this food-related object + recipe request

Found this 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]

Like cinnamon sugar, only substitute X for cinnamon?

I am looking for alternative cake toppings to frosting - especially those that can be baked with the cake. Right now I make a "snickerdoodle" cake that is topped with cinnamon sugar (1 tbsp granulated sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon) at the batter stage, which bakes into a hard, sweet crumbly top. Is there anything else I can mix with sugar to get the same effect (I tried using cocoa powder instead of the cinnamon, but it didn't come out right - or maybe I did it wrong)? Alterately, what other non-frosting/icing/glaze topping options do you use besides confectioners sugar? (only one hitch - would really appreciate nondairy options). Thanks!

ISO delicious, indulgent, single-serving dessert recipes

What are your favorite single-serving dessert recipes? (I want to avoid over indulging, so the idea is to make my own single-servings at home, thereby increasing dessert-eating transaction costs and decreasing dessert supply.)

Yes I can bake a cherry pie, Billy boy, but I'd like to make something else instead

Last year when I hosted my family's Easter do, I served a special apple dessert for the sake of an apple-loving niece. This year it's my cherry-loving niece's turn to be indulged. What special cherry-based dessert recipes can you suggest?

Banana creme pudding?

Smooth banana pudding? Years ago I cooked a banana pudding that was made from scratch with ordinary ingredients, yet fairly easy (stovetop, no double boiler), but I've lost the recipe. Most the recipes I've found on the web so far call for instant pudding mix (icky), and all are giving directions for what is basically a custard with sliced bananas in it, instead of the smooth "banana creme" pudding I'm remembering. Do you have a recipe for something like this? Or alternatively, something using bananas that's so good, it's going to make me forget all about that silly old "smooth pudding" recipe?
