Cake, Tarta, Pastel, Gateaux, The Good Stuff

So it's not very often a day goes by without cheesecake or white chocolate gracing my thoughts at some point. Hence one of my favourite pastimes is concocting some delicacy incorporating one or both of the above forms, as displayed below:

White chocolate, rasberry and marshmallow cheesecake on a chocolate hobnob base, 
with a wall of Cadbury's honeycomb fingers and decorated with Lindt sea salt &caramel dark chocolate

Custard, caramel and grated dark chocolate cheesecake on a chocolate hobnob base,
decorated with Cadbury's caramel buttons

White chocolate millionare's shortbread

Cookies and cream lollipops with a white chocolate coating and dusting of grated milk chocolate,
as adapted from Lorraine Pascale's recipe

“But how will I eat cake if my head is over there, and my hands are over here?” 
― Marie Antoinette

"Let's face it, a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people; it does for me."
 Audrey Hepburn

"For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake."
 Alfred Hitchcock
