It is really confusing where to put 什么

Chinese language has a grammatical construction relationship between question and answer. So think of how one would answer the question, "My hobby is woodworking ". The corresponding question would be, "Your hobby is what"? Both question and answer share the same word order.

什么是你的爱好? Isn't this correct too?

No the subject has to come first. It's improper Grammer the way you have it.
