Even those who claim not to have a sweet tooth will find it impossible to resist Delia's fabulous sweet offerings, from cakes to ice cream, crumbles to creamy fruit puddings.
This is quite definitely an idea that matches the charm and popularity of the Sticky Toffee Puddings with Pecan Toffee Sauce – it has the same degree of lightness and, this time, the fragrance and spiciness of preserved ginger.
Serve these pretty little wafers with any ice cream, but particularly pistachio. They can be stored in an airtight tin, giving you plenty of opportunities to indulge!
This is for people who don’t like things too sweet but, that said, if you do, add a tablespoon of sugar to the filling.
So light it almost floats, choux pastry is one of the simplest things to make – and one of the most versatile. This recipe guarantees perfect choux buns then transforms them into a golden croquembouche.
Not everyone loves the traditional rich plum pudding, so if you're after something lighter for your festive finale, look no further than this wonderfully light pud that won't leave you feeling too full!

I think if you're going to make a mousse for yourself then you deserve to get plenty of flavour from it – and this one certainly offers that!
The traditional recipe for this age-old favourite can be adapted for one person. With the quantities below it works best in a 4 inch (10 cm) diameter ramekin dish.
