If you buy bread from a baker's where do you buy your cakes? That was the question today and it unearthed a minefield of complexity!
Cakes are found in cake shops. How pragmatic we are in Blighty! However a person who makes cakes professionally is a pastry chef. And a pastry is not a cake! It's all those dry sweet things that we tend to call Danish pastries although they look and taste the same as French ones! And as for a croissant....well that's a croissant, of course.
What's your favourite English dessert/cake/pudding?
