Before you can create any desert you have to understand how to make the foundation of the desert, this is the base, The bases are divided into Pastry which includes Puff Pasty, short sweet paste and choux Dairy/Egg Based deserts Cake Based deserts Puffpastry.co.uk
There are there methods of making Puff Pastry, English, French and Scottish (known as flaky pastry) The ingredients are the same for each one, the difference is how they are laminated. Laminations is created by building up layers of dough and fat. It is when the pastry is placed into a hot oven that the fat will melt and create pockets of steam, it is the steam that will make the pastry rise and create the layers that make it light and easy to eat.
The dough is a mixture of strong flour needed to withstand the steam that the fat will create, water, margarine, lemon juice and very cold butter. The flour, margarine, lemon juice and water are mixed together to make a stiff dough. The dough must be well worked to develop the gluten which is the protein in the flour, mix until a degree of elasticity is achieved.

Cake is made from eggs, fat, sugar, flour and some times glycerine is added to keep the cake moist. Sponge is a fat free mixture that tends to be lighter than a cake base. In both cases aeration that makes the cake/sponge light and fluffy is acheived by the air that is incorporated during mixing.
