If I find that the Royal Icing recipe is too thick (as egg white sizes vary), would I thin it down with more egg white or water? Haven't made Royal Icing before! Thanks

Spiced Cranberry & Orange Brulee. Lindsey I am making this at the weekend but would be grateful if you could clarify the final procedure, ie When you're ready to make the topping .... Spread the sugar evenly over the crème fresh and yogurt! The crème fresh and yogurt in the ingredients list are already covered with the cranberries. Is there more crème fresh and yogurt required for the topping or is the sugar sprinkled straight onto the cranberries - in which case the cranberries would be cooked again! Also does this freeze like the custard based ones. Many thanks. Eileen

Hi Lindsay - I intend to make this for Christmas Day - can I make it in advance, say on Christmas Eve? How should I store it once I have made it? Thanks.
In a lot of Delia's recipe in the method it states to whisk eggs and sugar until just beginning to thick BUT DON'T over do it. This is the first time I've seen this advice. What is the result of overbeating at this stage. Thank you for your help Lindsey
I love to bake but I don't have a entire suite of baking tins unfortunately. If Delia's recipe specifies an 8in round tin for a sponge mixture how do I scale the recipe up accurately if I have a 9in round cake tin please?
