Hi there. I'm planning to make some birthday party biscuits using a circular letter stamper with a personalised message on. I want to make sure the recipe I use is firm enough to hold the message when cooked. Would the Creepy Cookies recipe be suitable? Thanks.

I've baked 160 of Nigella's scones for a tea in 2 days time. Tonight I wrapped the frozen scones in foil in packages of 10, then put each package into a freezer bag. We will reheat them before serving. My concern is - will they develop moisture in the plastic bag? Would they get soggy? Awful thought!

I have made the No-Churn Coffee Ice Cream recipe several times but it always freezes solid. Please advise how to make it soft.

Hi! I am going to make a red velevet cake instead of the cupcakes. My question is what is the cream cheese used? I.e. is it mascarpone or other? Thanks!

When Nigella states "not buffalo mozzarella" please tell me what to use as the only other readily available one is a quite plastic ball! Could I substitute baby bocconcini? It sounds as though there is a "wet" mozzarella out there!

I love making and eating the Sambuca Kisses. However, I cook them in rapeseed oil and find a rather unpleasant after-taste. Which type of oil would you recommend for cooking them? Thank you.
