|I've brought all sorts of food products into China: homemade smoked salmon, canned venison, canned antelope, venison jerky, venison sausage sticks, jellies, candies and even more than the allowable quantity of cigars. |
Chinese customs has never been a problem.
However, with some of the troubles over the economy and other internal concerns, you may face more scrutiny than I have in the past.

|GUESTANNIE||Thanks for your reply Griz. I think I'll get baking and worry about things, if need be, when I go through customs next week.|

|No problem usually. Bring it in checked luggage.|

|Australia indeed is very strict about food coming in. I have had that experience when one of my friends was charged with false declarations. In China, I have been stopped by China customs at the airport when some products are packed in the cartons/boxes but not the travelling bags. But they were never be confiscated.|

|Last October I brought two large bags of assorted Kiwi goodies for a chap staying in Shanghai. They were in my suitcase and while inspected was not held up at all. |
Ironically returning back to NZ with no food, they even inspected a souvenir fan!

|I also bring all sorts of home cooked goodies and other not to easy to find ingredients from Australia. I never declare them and I've never been checked. |
Bake to your hearts content. You can get long life cream and cheese here unless you are heading for the sticks. But is is easier to bring a small stash with you and since the weather is cold there will be no problems with refrigderation.
