Hi, can you please tell me how to store fondant icing once opened? I have tried everything, even clingfilm, but nothing seems to work. I find I am wasting more than I am using by having to cut the dry parts off. I have tried putting the icing in clingfilm and sealing in a plastic container but the icing still drys out all around the edges. Thankyou, Jean Perry

Hi, I am looking for some ideas for my son's birthday in a few weeks - I have about 15 children coming for a tea party. Also he has asked for an "amazing chocolate birthday cake". Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

Many recipes call for small amounts of wine, is it possible to freeze the leftover amount? Will freezing it damage any of the properties? (PS I'm not opposed to drinking the remaining wine...if I HAVE to!).
