Hi Nigella Team, I have a problem with my cupcakes - the tops turn sticky when I take them out of the container I've stored them in. They are fine when they come out of the oven. After cooling, I kept it in an airtight container, and few in a normal box. Later when i opened both the boxes. I found all the cupcakes had developed a very sticky top. Please help! I guess, if you are planning to frost it, no one will notice the sticky top. But if I would like to have them without frosting, they have an extremely sticky top. Any suggestions? Anjanaa Singapore.
Hi Nigella and Team! When I make cup cakes they seem to part from their cup cake cases after cooking and cooling, making them look very untidy, any ideas as to what is causing this to happen? Many thanks, Doodie Buns

Hello from Cairo! I would like to know the measurements for Instant Chocolate Mousse for 15 people. Also it is possible to serve it in a big bowl instead of small individual glasses? Thanks for your kind help Iman Essam

For the Ginger Passionfruit Trifle what is the closest equivalent of the green ginger wine? I don't think we have it here in Sydney. I would be happy to use another alcoholic drink, but have never seen a ginger one. Perhaps I can use ginger cordial syrup, dilute it with water and then mix in some brandy or rum to make up a total of the recommended amount of liquid? I think that would work well in the Trifle recipe. Thanks!
