Hi I've made this cake lots of times and it always turns out great. This time the cake is fine and the frosting was all shiny and glossy but just before I started to frost my cake the frosting has gone all lumpy. And has lost its shine! Any ideas how I can stop that from happening please? Thanks!

Hi, would like to make the Easter Egg Nest Cake as part of a relaxed Easter Sunday lunch and were wondering how much you can do ahead of time. Can I make the base the day before and store in an airtight container in a refrigerator (or is it better at room temperature?) and fill with cream and decorate just before serving?

Hi there! I would like to know how far ahead can I freeze the batter of the Totally Chocolate Chip Cookies. And should I bake them from frozen or should I let them defrost at room temperature first? Thank you!
