    Sorry to be so clueless here. I'm doing a report on baked goods.. Just wanted to ask what the difference was between bread, cakes and pastries. Also, is quiche a pastry? most sites i've seen say that it is but there are some recipes saying that it is bread. Answers would be highly appreciated.

    Part of doing a report is doing the work.

    We won't be doing that for you.

    But here's a few vague pointers.

    flour differences, leavening differences, fat management in the dough/crust bread/, classical kitchen classifications and management, gluten/protein, the role of sugar in the particular dish
