Branching off of the Candy Shop thread (great idea!) What's your favorite:

Cake
Candy Bar
Cookie
General/Hard Candy
Ice Cream Flavor
Pie
Generic Pastry/Dessert (Baklava, Napoleons, etc...)


I'll start:

Chocolate Mousse cake. My favorite comes from Josef's bakery in Grosse Pointe Woods, MI.
Plain dark chocolate from Ghirardelli or Lindt
Chocolate chip (slightly modified tollhouse recipe)
Altoids
Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. Ben & Jerry's is fantastic, but plain old Baskin Robins is pretty outstanding. The trick is getting the size and sweetness of the chips just right.
Dutch Apple Pie
Cannoli from Bommarito's Italian bakery in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. It may be the perfect dessert.

Cake: White cake. I love wedding cake! (Traditional American wedding cake, not the UK dense fruitcake variety).
Candy Bar: Dove Bar
Cookie: Toll House chocolate chip, all hot and melty.
General/Hard Candy: Not really a fan.
Ice Cream Flavor: I'll try any, but if I'm buying ice cream, it's vanilla. I prefer Breyer's Natural Vanilla; it doesn't have any weird ingredients, just milk, cream, sugar and vanilla.
Pie: Key lime or cherry, dependent on season.
Generic Pastry/Dessert (Baklava, Napoleons, etc...) Since you mention it, Baklava is awesome.
