What are your favorite desserts that are referenced in books and movies?

I couldn't find a recipe for the dessert I wanted to make for Thanksgiving. The only recipe I could find required something pre-cooked by default that doesn't count as homemade. As a replacement, my nerdy self wants to find a dessert referenced in books of movies. Some examples would be the "chocolate" pie Minnie made from The Help, which is one of my favorite books. Or pumpkin pasties referenced in the Harry Potter books.

Updates:
22d I decided on lemon cakes, referenced in game of thrones and Sansa's favorite dessert
And butterscotch cinnamon pie, referenced in Lord of the Rings. I have very religious family members and I was planning on taking advantage of that. I wanted to make blood pie referenced in game of thrones, so that way when they ask what pie is it, I can say with a straight face that it's blood pie.

  • The only one I can think of is the Wonka Bar.

    This is a Wonka Bar cake, but maybe instead of a cake, you could make a pumpkin strudel, and cover it up like you would cover a cake.

      If you wanna go full Game of Thrones you can make Frey pie lol just need a couple of Freys.

  • Fucking turkish delight.
    It looks so good in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
    I tried to make it a few years back and it didn't turn out well (not solid enough, also didn't have rose flavoring so we used almond extract and it was way too sweet).

    Ordered some on Amazon, and the taste was alright but I'm not sure if the consistency was what it's supposed to be like, and the pieces were pretty small.

    So I'm still on the quest to find some that looks like it did in that movie.
