Hi, I recently saw Nigella cut out & pop some tea-lights into some apples, & even some cucumber!, but where on earth can I purchase some tea-light cutters?
Hi In one of the Christmas shows Nigella used a candle cutter to cut holes in fruit to display canles Do you have any idea where we could purchase one of these from. Thanks ape
My mum has commented that she would like to have the gadget used on television a few weeks ago which allowed you to make a piece of fruit into a tea-light holder. I would like to get it for her birthday but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Would you be able to point me in the the right direction? Thanks. jfrancis

Hello Nigella team! My name is Nathaly, I'm from Brasil. Recently I was given as a gift the book "How to be a domestic goddess" and I decided to do the Passionfruit Curd. When I prepared this recipe, I found it too acid. I remembered that here we have two tipes of this fruit: one called "acid passionfruit" and other "sweet passionfruit". The first one is commonly used to prepare juices, and the other one to eat the fruit in natura. I would like to know which one Nigella recommend to use in her recipe. Thank you!

My query refers to the Birthday Cake in Nigella's How to Eat. The consistency of the ganache when I make it is very thick and not pourable as described in the book and thus the finish of my cake is not flawless and shiny. Do you have any advice?
