Hi, I live in Argentina and I've noticed that what Welsh colonies call "Welsh Cake" here, is not quite the same as those in the UK. A Welsh cake here is dark, rather tall and spongy. They are both fruitcakes in a way, but I still haven't managed to find out what the actual differences are regarding ingredients. Maybe they are totally different cakes but they just go by the same name? And if they aren't, do you know why are they have the same name?

Hi, last night I made Chocolate Pistachio Fudge from Express, poured the delicious goo into trays and left it to set in the fridge overnight. To my horror it hasn't set! I can't even remove the fudge from the trays as it is so soft. The recipe is so simple I can't believe I messed up. Help! Thanks, Jo
My 8yr old daughter made the Chocolate Pistachio Fudge, we followed the recipe to the letter. The problem is that when we tried to get the fudge out of the foil tray it was stuck and I had to use a knife to get it out. I was wondering if we did something wrong, and is there anyway to not leave half of the fudge in the foil tray? Jay

Hi, can the Honey Semifreddo (Forever Summer, p242) be made several days in advance? The recipe only states 2-3 hours. Thanks!
