post #2941 of 19827

Welcome Ladies. It is great to have more people from the UK to share ideas, tips and links to good sites. Not been in here for while as I seemed to have lost the link. I had to go and search for it after the website update.

post #2942 of 19827

Thanks for your replies. Much appreciated...

 

I'll check out all the sites mentioned. I have a 2-tier cake due in 2 weeks and I have to sort out the box ahead of time.

did anyone enter cake international?

post #2944 of 19827
Unfortunately not. Did look in to going but as I'm in Glasgow it was just a bit too expensive travelling etc so close to Christmas. I'm sure I read on there facebook that they were considering a show in glasgow so fingers crossed icon_smile.gif

I don't know if this is a silly idea or has already been brought up, sorry  if this already has been but  I just wanted to add some input..... instead of having to constantly read through one thread why can't we UK people have our own section with multiple threads in. About cake questions, experiences, etc etc because I feel that trying to find things in one thread can be somewhat time consuming since there are many pages icon_rolleyes.gif. I hope that this makes sense  thumbs_up.gif  What does everyone else think? yay or ney?

 

 

P.S Sorry if this is in the wrong section I wasn't sure where to put it. icon_redface.gif

Hi! I found this recipe a while back and everyone I know prefers it to the butter versions and it lasts days without drying up. http://www.moodfoodblog.com/2010/06/vanilla-sponge-mood-cake-coma.html hope it helps!

I wonder if we could approach a moderator who can then go to someone higher or if someone is able to contact the people who edits the website. I do know of a UK open group on Facebook but I don't know if I can openly advertise it on here, I can PM you it if you'd like :)

I started a thread in the 'site feedback and technical support' forum asking for a UK section, you can see the thread Here  :) Hopefully it helps!

Hi all, sorry for the delay in replying and thank you for your posts. Finally I have bought a mixer.... I'm sooo excited! I think I got a real bargain. I searched high and low and ended up going to Currys who had one on sale. It's a KENWOOD CHEF PREMIER KMC510 it's 4.6ltr 1000w

It should of been £379.99 and it was on sale for £179.99 ... Iv not used it yet as hubbie has got it for my birthday icon_sad.gif which is a whole week away lol

Fingers crossed I have got a good one... There is just so much to choose from. If anyone is interested in getting one they don't have many left, I think it's a case if when they have gone they have gone.

Thanks again
A very excited Sarah icon_biggrin.gif

Can anyone help? My Gran's nursing home are having a Christmas fate next Sunday and I have already made a Christmas cake which is just waiting to be decorated... I think they are going to raffle it...

I have fed the cake and all seems well... My question is if I ice it with marzipan and sugarpaste will it last till Christmas if the winner decides to keep it till Christmas?

A decorated fruitcake should be fine until Christmas.  Don't use cornflour to roll out the marzipan as I have heard it can cause a reaction. Use icing sugar instead.

 

Hope your cake raises lots of money.

post #2955 of 19827
If you use corn flour instead of icing sugar it will cause the marzipan to ferment and grow mould. Make sure you use BOILED apricot jam as a sealant and "glue" for putting the marzipan on the cake to kill and keep out bacteria. It will last till Christmas, the RTR icing or RI will hold in the moisture and will preserve the cake. Just make sure you (and the raffle winner) keep it in a box in a cool dry place so that dust doesn't settle on it and colours don't fade.
