    This cake was too crumbly. It sadly fell apart before I could even ice it.

    Submitted by Chris Foley on 4. April 2016 - 20:41.

    Hi Liz, 

    Great recipe. Have only baked it once but the result was brilliant. Great crumb and texture. Perfect for a birthday cake (slab / sheet) or similar. 

    Will definitely use this again (and again).

    Thanks

  • My 11 year old daughter made

    Submitted by gep67 on 5. October 2015 - 16:33.

    My 11 year old daughter made this entirely on her own, so I cannot vouch for how accurately she followed the instructions, but she said: " delicious but bit crumbly when I sliced it for shaping" (she  was trying to make a particular decorated cake). I'll give it a go next time and see!

  • Hi Liz, Have you used Fondant

    Submitted by Jess120789 on 13. August 2015 - 15:22.

    Hi Liz,

    Have you used Fondant icing for this cake before?

    Just wondering whether or not it is dense enough to hold the weight of fondant.

     

    Thanks

    Jess

  • I made this gluten free (Aldi

    Submitted by Kelstar77 on 12. May 2015 - 21:15.

    I made this gluten free (Aldi flour) and it was lovely on the day of making it however I found the next day it was very dry. I have not had that problem with any other gluten free cakes I make. I will make it again as it was a lovely cake but will freeze the rest that doesn't get eaten.
