Yes, I did some cross-referencing (used to doing that as I used to have to research some obscure medical conditions for work) and it was all a bit ambiguous .

Dove that is just a lemon cake if it's not drizzled then  surely

Yes, the recipe says the icing should 'drizzle down the sides' .............. wrong!


Fidget - re modding of threads - I think that would be fine for us old hands, but new posters would be very vulnerable to manipulation  and it gives the trolls and wums power, which is just what they want - one could start and control hundreds of threads and if we'd Ignored him/her we wouldn't know and be able to report to Daniel.

I've used polystyrene packaging broken into chunks - it works and doesn't weigh the container down too much.

There is a NT recipe book by Sybil Kapoor called Simply Baking - it's got some good recipes in, but there's one flaw identified - I think they use her recipe for Lemon Drizzle - it's more like the one we were presented with - it is certainly not a proper one.  No lemon and sugar syrup to pour over after pricking the top with a skewer - just a lemon icing

Yes - nigra = black, so does Copper in this case refer to a place called Copper River maybe?

Nut, we should've had them with the Trade Descriptions Act - definitely Not Fit For Purpose
