I recently made the Coconut Cake from Nigella's Domestic Goddess book (p23). Both cakes were beautiful when they came out of the oven, but within 5 minutes they had collapsed down to virtually nothing! What did I do wrong?

What can you use instead cake flour in the Butter Cut Out Biscuits recipe from Domestic Goddess (p212)? I bought my book in the USA and now live in London. Thanks, Tanya

I made the Molten Chocolate Babycakes (Domestic Goddess, p179) last night but they did not set. I put them in the fridge before dinner because I had guests and did not want to have to put them together after the main course. There was nothing wrong with the taste, but when I popped them out of the ramekins in which I baked them they kind of collapsed and looked more like a dark, guey chocolate mousse. I would like for them to bake into little cakes like in the picture and when you put your spoon in the filling oozes out. Please help me??
