Hi, I was just wondering would it make a mess of the Birthday Custard Sponge cake to bake it all in one in a silicone cake tin and cut it in half after to for the filling. Basically what I am trying to achieve is a birthday cake for my brother in a Happy Birthday silicone cake tin, is there a better cake recipe that would suit this maybe?

Can I substitute 1 cup of Maple Syrup instead of granulated sugar or would that make the cake too moist? How about substituting xylitol for sugar? Thanks.

Pearl sugar is wonderful on top of muffins and loaf cakes but I cannot see it in supermarkets or shops near me (Northern Ireland). Does anyone know where I can buy it? I can order it online but am trying to keep costs to a minimum so postage needs to be free.

Hello I am looking forward to making a cake recipe that asks for 3 tablespoons of golden syrup, which I don't have and can't get at the moment. Do you know if honey works well as a substitute in cakes?

I don't know how to convert grams to American cups, tablespoons, teaspoons, etc. Grams don't convert to ounces easily. I'd like to try some of Nigella's recipes, but can't translate the amounts. Can you help?
