Hello! I would like to try making edible gift baskets for Christmas this year, so I was wondering if I could make the Vanilla Shortbread in advance. If possible I would prefer to make the shortbreads up to 2 months in advance and freeze them. Will this be OK? Thank you!

I have made Nigella's Damp Lemon and Almond Cake and I was just wondering if it will it still be good for a coffee morning in 2 day's time? I have double wrapped it in tin foil.

Hello Nigella Team! Some of the recipes on Nigella's website call for golden caster sugar. Here in the US I'm not sure we have such a thing, though I am aware of caster sugar (white) and golden brown sugar. Do you know of a substitute I can use for the golden caster sugar? Please let me know, thanks so much! Mira
