Hi, i am planning to make chocolate merigue cupcakes for a party. I have made many merigues succesfully with Nigella's instructions and people adore the squidgy centers of the chocolate pavlova and the passion fruit pavlova. However, my recipe for meringue cupcakes calls for the use of cream of tartar in the meringue and not vineger (as Nigella uses). Will I still be able to achieve the squidgy centers for the meringue topping on the cupcakes? I have never used cream of tartar before and don't want my meringue toppings to turn out like those horrid dried out meringues that you can buy from the supermarket. Regards Dawn

How long can the chocolate cheescake be kept in the Fridge? I'm hoping to make it on a Thursday morning to serve on a Saturday evening. Thank you!

I'm planning on baking the old-fashioned cheesecake from Kitchen this weekend but I cannot find any curd cheese (I was shopping in Tesco and looked everywhere in the supermarket!!). Could you please advise me which shops curd cheese can be found in or which easily-found alternatives I could use? Thank you very much, Sandra x
