A soft, bread-like cake with a surface of uniform indentations similar to a honeycomb. Waffles are made with a pourable batter that usually consists of flour, milk, oil, sugar, eggs, salt, and baking powder. All-purpose baking mixes, which consist of premeasured dry ingredients, are also available for ease of preparation. The necessary liquid ingredients are added to the all purpose mix, which can then be used for waffles, pancakes, or biscuits. After the batter is prepared, it is poured onto a waffle iron that cooks the batter and forms the honeycombed pattern. Waffles are traditionally served for breakfast or brunch and may be topped with syrup, fruit, or butter.
A cracker is a flat, dry baked food typically made with flour. Flavorings or seasonings, such as salt, herbs, seeds, or cheese, may be added to the dough or sprinkled on top before baking. Crackers are often branded as a nutritious and convenient way to consume a staple food or cereal grain.

Fresh bread is a type of bread that belongs to the bread line and is made from flour or cereal ingredients and then fermented and cooked. Although in general, fresh bread has a very similar recipe to bread but the taste of fresh bread is completely different.
If the bread is only good when first baked, the fresh bread will last 5 to 7 days. The fresh bread is soft, fluffy, and spongy, and has a flavor that is quite similar to a sponge cake but has not reached the softness of a sponge cake. That is also the characteristic of fresh bread. This feature is formed because during the processing process, the type of flour used to make fresh bread has the ingredient of sponge cake. Besides, fresh bread comes in many different flavors. It can be fresh sweet bread or fresh savory bread, depending on the taste of the processor.
Mooncake is a bakery product traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival. Mooncakes are offered between friends or on family gatherings while celebrating the festival. Typical mooncakes are round or rectangular pastries, measuring about 10 cm in diameter and 4–5 cm thick.

Today, it is customary for businessmen and families to present them to their clients or relatives as presents, helping to fuel a demand for high-end mooncake styles.
The use of more sophisticated flavours and formats is adding a further layer of innovation.
