Hi, I would like to make a cake for my daughter's second birthday. I was thinking of making a three layered version of Nigella's Marmalade Pudding Cake with orange whipped cream filling and orange whipped butter cream frosting. I am planning to bake three separate cakes for the layers. I love the marmalade cake recipe because its orangey and moist rather than some of the dry layered cakes. Is it a bad idea? Also will the butter cream frosting make it too sweet? Thank you Sumi

Hello Nigella Team! Nigella recommends dry marsala as a substitute for red wine in her book Kitchen. Several recipes use amontillado sherry. In Nigellissima, red vermouth is often used. Are any of these interchangeable? I have a tiny kitchen, what would you recommend if I could only buy one? Thanks!

Hi Help please. I have been asked to make a christening cake fully decorated with fondant icing, decorations etc. The only problem is that they want a chocolate sponge and I'm worried it won't be dense enough to take the icing etc. Any suggestions please?

Hi Team Nigella! I switched on to the Food Channel and Nigella was finishing preparing a chocolate pudding, I only remembered two ingredients - chocolate and fresh cream. I can't remember the other two ingredients but can you help?

My friend is lives in France and can't find Trex in the supermarket. I can't think of an equivalent French product. Do you have any suggestions?
