No they are all puddings and just to confuse things a bit more puddings don't even need to be sweet.
You can have steak and kidney pudding, bacon and onion pudding or even black pudding.

In the States, as far as I am aware, pudding is stuff in pots like custard. Not sure what the Australian equivalent is.

I think you should make a chocolate tart, it's easy!

Equal quantities of dark chocolate and double cream, melt them together in a bain marie add a knob of butter and stir it in.
Pour the whole lot into a pre bought sweet pastry case and chill in the fridge until set.
It's super chocolatey and makes women weak at the knees!
Serve with a decent sized blob of clotted cream and be mummies special number one super guy for the rest of the month!

In Australia pudding can mean a couple of things- none of which are above. To us it's either a sort of sweet porridge (tapioca, rice pudding), a variety of flavoured custard (as per the Americans) or a sort of small individual cake, which is often baked in a very rich sauce. There's also Christmas pudding, which is essentially a fruity baked pudding. Oh, and finally, there's the Magic Pudding.

I believe what you're calling pudding is what the rest of us call dessert? In that case, consider the following-

One needs to think of what's being eaten for starters and mains. For instance, if an enormous turkey is being served for dinner, everyone will be too full to properly enjoy say, an uber rich chocolate mud cake- you'd be better to go for something fruity. However, if it's just steaks, or seafood, then one may consider an indulgent, rich dessert to cap off the evening.

With the information at hand, I'd suggest a happy mid-ground with a cheesecake, or better still- a Chocolate Bavarian. The Chocolate Bavarian is a happy compromise between an indulgent chocolate and a lighter mousse, whilst still having the substance and presence of a cake. It should be reasonably simple to pick up from a continental bakehouse, and even most chain bakeries should have it available. or if you're supposed to make it yourself, I'm sure you can find the answer on the internets.

Hope this helps!

Pudding is the English word for desert.
