I would like to make the ultimate carrot cake for a tier on my son's wedding cake. I intend to replace the mascarpone with a flavoured buttercream. Once baked, how long would the cake keep unrefrigerated? I want to ice it with fondant.
Also how can I scale the recipe to 3 x 6 inch sandwich tins?
P.S. i shall be using the fruit cake recipe again - it was a huge success for my other son's wedding!
For many years I have made chocolate bread and butter pudding for a local charity event. As I am going to be away until the day before the event I would like to know if it is possible to freeze it and defrost and reheat the morning of the lunch
Hello, I have tried and tried to see the television episides of How To Cook series 3. I purchased the original series 1 & 2, could not purchase series 3, have looked and looked to see any screenings ANYWHERE of these TV episodes on any of the food networks, iplayers, or online elsewhere (even, I must say, the library). (Given the work which must have gone into this series on Delia's part I am amazed).
I've made the cheese pastry tart case from Delia's Christmas but I don't want to serve it for a couple of days. Can I freeze it and if so do I need to defrost it before adding the quiche/tart ingredients - Also should I freeze it in the tin? It's very fragile... or will it be better just to leave it in the fridge for 2 days then fill it.... I'm going to do more of a quiche lorraine filling but I love this pastry! Many thanks.
I’ve just made Delia’s Banana and Walnut Loaf - alas, it didn’t rise much and is very stodgy. Tastes great but not what I was expecting and not at all like the consistency in the photo and video.
Please advise what I have done wrong.
