Thank you so much for all your posts, I used a metal flower nail and cooked it at 160 and it came out perfect. Thank you so much xxx
Thank you ladies I'd never thought of that, I'll give it a go xxx
Can anyone help me please? Whenever I bake a large cake (normally 4 egg mix or over) it collapses in middle about 2/3 of the way through the cooking time?! It's driving me nuts! I tend to level it off after cooking and it still tastes lovely but I can't work out why it keeps doing it? Thank you in advance xxx
Morning everyone I'm looking for a bit of advice please. I've been asked by my friend to do them a 3 tier cheesecake as their wedding cake (my first wedding cake and she's set the standard high by picking cheesecake!! Lol).

Hi I'm from the uk and I've just been to a cake show and bough 'the mat'. You roll your fondant between two sheets and it makes covering cakes and boards soooo much easier! I'm a beginner and its the best bit of equipment I've bought. Hope this helps xxx
