Well Christmas pudding, plum pudding and figgy pudding are all steamed cakes but they can vary by ingredients.

Also Sugar Plums are a candy that don't necessarily have plums in them but they can.

Yes, cheesecloth helps to more evenly distribute the liqueur and it also helps protect and preserve the cake. In England, cakes are called puddings. I think that is why we get confused and expect and American pudding and wind up with a cake.
