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.

I have baked three cakes one square which is being fed and seems to be good and two smaller round ones which are far too wet. I have re-wrapped them in fresh paper and foil as advised by a friend but when I went to feed them this week they are far too wet. Should I bin them or can they be rescued?
