Don't leave a gap between the first [[ and the address!

Do you want chocolate cake or ordinary victoria sponge cake? I have recipes for both if you'd like them.

Pretty much any recipe that's calls for a 7" or 8" will be fine in your tin, although you may have to bake it in two layers as your tin is quite shallow.

Thanks Lady smile

I was thinking chocolate but am debating just a normal sponge and doing it rainbow colours for a nice effect when its cut.
I was thinking I would need two layers as its not deep
