I have steamed my Ultimate Christmas Pudding and I think I made a mistake! I put the vodka in the pudding. The recipe said put the remaining pudding ingredients into the mixing bowl, and vodka was on the list, so in it went! While the pudding is cooking, I read through the rest of the instructions to be super prepared for Christmas day and discovered that vodka goes over the top of the pudding! Do you think my pudding will be ok?

Hi, I have simmered and soaked my Christmas fruit in 400ml of brandy and have run out. Instead of buying more brandy, can I feed my cake with whisky or rum (one or the other) up until Christmas? Should I feed the cake once a week? Thank you, Fay
I have made my Ultimate Christmas pudding - I have heard of people feeding their pudding with a tablespoon of the Sherry once every couple of weeks - Is this necessary? Does it enhance or detract from the pudding? Thanks, Fiona

I would like to make Nigella's Chocolate Fruit Cake but divide it into 4 small cakes for older family members. Is this possible if I cook it in a square tin and if so what size? Cheers! Robyn.
