Poll: Sweets for Icon!

This is going to be LJ-only 'cause I have a free account on DW and can't make polls there.

I need an icon for sweet treats - something more direct than Kio here. What should I use? All of these are favorites of mine.

What should it be now?

A fudgy brownie (no nuts!)
0(0.0%)
A frosted chocolate cupcake
1(5.9%)
A soothing cup custard with nutmeg on top
1(5.9%)
An elegant eclair in a frilly paper
1(5.9%)
A shimmery panna cotta with red berries on the side
3(17.6%)
Something autumnal and rich, like pumpkin bread
1(5.9%)
A gooey, dark chocolate mousse
6(35.3%)
A napoleon/millefeuille with kajillion flaky layers and cream
3(17.6%)
A dish of fresh berries with saboyon sauce poured over
1(5.9%)

It was hard to decide between the eclair and the mousse!

I'm actually shocked that I got votes on some of my relatively light and non-chocolate suggestions!

Now I need to go back and MAKE A CUSTARD ICON.

Where have you been, stranger? ♥

Playing Glitch, flaking on my writing, the usual. :D On the upside, I bought a steam mop and WOW MY FLOOR LOOKS GREAT.

I like that icon, it's purty.

I'm not gonna say what MY floor looks like, especially here in my office space (actually, smilla has been keeping the rest of the floors on this level in pretty good shape - I have too much junk in here for any of that ...). We'll probably do some gonzo housecleaning tomorrow because we're having some relatives over for lunch on Sunday. I know my mom-in-law won't care, but my sis-in-law is an immaculate housekeeper. She's too nice to say anything, but it always makes me twitchy when she comes to visit.

I did a whole set of sweets icons as a result of that poll. I'm glad you like it!

This steam mop is MAGICAL. I need to get the Roomba up and running so I can do lots of housework without actually working much.

Yeeeeah, I have those relatives too. Hope you pulled it off.

Maybe a chocolate moose instead? For the pun of it.

We did that in the SCA once. It was the investiture of a new prince and princess of Atlantia, and she loved chocolate mousse. So we made this amazing/appalling cake of a moose's head, and one of our cook's guild who worked IRL making ice cream cakes at Baskin Robbers decorated it with hundreds of tufts of chocolate icing and the eyes laid out in silver dragees. It looked like we had Bullwinkle's head on a platter ... .

I gotta go for the eclair. There's something special and irresistible about something long, sweet, filled with yummy cream, and drizzled with chocolate.... I mean, how can you go wrong? ^_______^ (And if it's REALLY good, you take a bite, and the filling splurts out and runs down your chin..... Ok, I'll stop...)

I just resisted the call of such an eclair. We have a location of the famous local bakery Bread and Chocolate in the neighborhood. They make great eclairs!
