Hi, I'm in Australia and making one of the christmas cakes, the one with prunes and cocoa in it, out of the Christmas book of Nigella's and it uses muscovado sugar. I have looked in the supermarkets here and can't locate it. Would dark brown sugar work the same way and at the same measurement? Thanks Catherine

If I make a Dundee cake for Xmas this week, will if keep ok or would it be better to make it nearer Xmas?

I have a kings ransom in cake tins, but I'm stuck for which would be best for a Christmas cake. Should I be going for one that's quite deep? Or will a fairly normal 7cm depth one be fine? This recipe I plan on using is the one from your book 'Nigella Christmas' (which I love!)
