Heat's Red Devil Cake
Use whatever Red Velvet cake instructions you want--out of the box, or fancy, or whichever. This one's good. Just the cake, not the icing. But, once the batter's done, throw in a cup and a half of Cinnamon Imperials--you know, the red hot kind people put on gingerbread houses, and add in some extra ginger and cinnamon. Bake however the box tells you to bake, you can probably do cupcakes with this, as long as the icing and filling stay the same.
It stops being a red velvet cake when you fill it. Cherry pie filling works if you're careful, but again, you can make your own. And then, the icing. The icing's the clincher here. That, you actually have to make because you can't get it anywhere else. One cup butter, a little vanilla and a little salt, a cup of cocoa an assload of cinnamon and maybe half a cup of boiling water first, beat it until it's all in there together, and then add about three and a half cups of powdered sugar a bit at a time. Still beating it. Takes a while.
So to put the cake together, put a thin layer of icing on however many middle layers you need to fill--leave the top for now--and then put the cherry filling on. Once you've got the top layer down, ice the rest. Decorate if you feel like it, I don't think it needs anything else.

Blueberries Foster ala Cielo
All right, you gonna need a pint of berries, a tablespoon of butter, a shot of dark rum, and a third a cup of the dark brown sugar for every two people you gonna serve. And you gonna wanna have some whipped cream and cookies around, maybe the same kind Gale's got. And you gonna need matches, or one of those clicker things, or Heat.
Then you gonna get yourself a skillet, put the butter in it, and put that on the stove, not too high. Butter's gonna melt. Once it does, you put the sugar and the berries in, and just slosh 'em around till they hot.
Then you gonna put them in a bowl with some cream and a cookie and pour on the rum, and then you gonna cast Agi.

Silent Protagonist Ice Cream Pie
This recipe requires two days.
Start with a graham-cracker crust. Make sure it is cool. Spread a layer of brown sugar on the bottom.
Partially melt 1 pint of Vanilla ice cream. Pour that into the crust. Marble-in a few drops of blue food coloring and half a cup of caramel ice-cream topping until the patterns are well-dispersed. Wrap in wax paper, cover with plastic, and return to the freezer overnight.
Spread with another layer of caramel syrup and brown sugar, then add whipped cream, blue if desired. Repeat the freezing procedure.
Before serving, allow three minutes to thaw.
