Are the temperatures given in Delias complete cookery course (reprint 2007) for fan overs or do I need to adjust them?

I would like to make Delia's Simnel cake recipe in a 18cm tin, how would I alter the ingredients and cooking times accordingly. Thanks.
Not a question - I just thought this was worth mentioning
I am just icing my younger daughter’s wedding cake and started thinking about the number of fruit cakes that I have made.
My husband gave me Delia Smith’s Complete Cookery Course for our first wedding anniversary in 1983 - I wasn’t that bad a cook but it has been a joke ever since.
Is the LITTLE GEM FRYING PAN suitable for induction hobs?
I would like to Thank you Lindsey for the wedding cake recipe for a 14 inch x 4 inch deep tin. When I saw the tin it looked so enormous that I made the ingredients up from 800 grams flour to 1000 grams and then all the other ingredient increased accordingly. Still not sure I soaked the fruit for Delias Christmas cake to either use or keep for 2017. When I filled the tin I was still about 1 inch short so used the extra mixture and it was perfect. Phew !! I cooked on fan 120 and lowered slightly after 6 hours. It actually took 9 hours.
Re: Fast Roasted Chicken. Last weekend I roasted a chicken. I followed the recipe provided in recent Delia Smith roasted chicken video. It tasted great but while it was cooking the chicken splattered significant amounts of grease inside the oven and there was smoke. Now my oven needs to be cleaned. What caused the chicken to do this? I thought that the chicken was pretty dry before roasting. It was left on the counter for 40 minutes before roasting. What can I do next time to prevent this mess. Thank you
