I am hoping to make Nigella's Gorgeously Golden Fruitcake for my parents 60th wedding anniversary and was wondering if this can be iced with marzipan and royal icing successfully. If not, would there be a suggested alternative at all please? Thank you so much for such a wonderful website.

I've been making Nigella's New Orleans Coleslaw quite a lot recently in individual portions and just wondered how long it would keep in the fridge if I made a big bowl at the weekend? Thanks Steph

Dear Nigella Team, the recipe for Norwegian Cinnamon Buns in Nigella's book Domestic Goddess mentions just flour. Which flour am I supposed to use-plain flour or bread flour? Thanks, Deepti.

Hi, I would like to make the Chocolate-Cherry Cupcakes from Nigella's "How to be a Domestic Goddess" book but I would like to make it as one big cake. If I did do this what size cake tin should I use? How long should I cook it for? What temperature should I cook it at? Thank you.

Can self-raising flour be used instead of plain flour in Nigella's Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake recipe? Also does it have to be 'unsalted' butter for this recipe?

Hi. I am going to try to cook Nigella's Crispy Duck recipe but I'm using just a crown rather than a whole duck. How long will it take to cook? I imagine it would be less?
