Thanks for this - a nice mixture! I have got about half of these - the easy ones of course - but I shall let others have a go before I submit them. I hope that you will get a good response, but not that many members look this far down the index!

I'll offer a few suggestions - probably including JCFC's "easy" ones, and quite possibly including one or two which are erroneous....

1.  Gobi  (?)
9.  Somali
12. Colorado (?)
15. Ice Cream
18. Arabian
20. Eton Mess
21. Spotted Dick
24. Atacama (?)
25. Kalahari
36. Death Valley
39 Apple Pie
45. Whip
48. Banbury Cakes
49. Pancakes

Hope you get some useful contributions from elsewhere!

If any of yours are erroneous, mauricelapin, then so are mine, though I think you may have listed the answer to number 2 as number 1.
