or is it a last-minute thing?

If I do, will it be OK in the 'fridge or does the sugar go soft?

The blow torch is so dusty, I can't remember......... TIA

I think the sugar might 'weep' if you stick it in the fridge - ie. get a bit tacky and damp...

I don't think I would do it if the tart was quite moist because the sugar would just dissolve again, but I seem to remember when I was at college they used to serve leftover creme brulee after a formal dinner which was fine.

Thanks - had a vague recollection of stg like that happening. So I could do it early and leave it out then? Not like I need to worry about it spoiling in the heat!

I'd say so - what is it anyway ?

Cross-posted. OK Kathy - is fairly moist (lemon tart). Would be a shame to spoil it. May do it just before mains. Is only my DF coming anyway!

Hope so! Never made it before.
