I was going to get a cake made for DSs Baptism but my mum's gone all Hyacinth Bucket and wants to make it tomorrow, but the Baptism is in 2 weeks Will it have enough time to 'season'? What can I do to it to hurry it up/make it taste better? Also my grandmothers recipe gives the option of treacle or cocoa - what do you think it best? And can you keep it in grease proof paper, wrapped again in brown paper?
Erm.... not sure, my mum has it. Are they not all bung it all in and stir? Looking at the ingredients list it's quite similar to Delias, so maybe the recipe is similar too? What are the main differences between a quick cake and a Christmas one done now (we are making ones for Christmas at the same time).
