Lenses for food photography

Hello,

I am working on a baking cookbook and need a lens where I'll be able to focus on small plates of sweets (7x7") without too much background. I was almost 100% sure that the Pansonic Leica 25mm f1.4 was the one to get, but now I'm a little uncertain about how much background I would be getting in these photos, because it says the closest focusing distance is 38cm. I suppose I could always crop the photos if this lens is really that superior to the others out there (I like that it's a good focal length for other purposes as well)...

Are there any other food photographers on here? What are you favourite lenses and why?
