Dear Nigella Team, I have just seen NIgella on TV making the Lemon Polenta Cake and I think that my family would love it, particularly as I have family members who are gluten intolerant. However I was also wondering if I could replace the sugar with fructose? Thank you in advance, Alexandra

Daughter has requested the Chocolate Fudge Cake from Nigella Bites for her birthday. The only ingredient I can't seem to find is corn oil. Is there any other oil I can use instead?

I am hoping to make Nigella's Gorgeously Golden Fruitcake for my parents 60th wedding anniversary and was wondering if this can be iced with marzipan and royal icing successfully. If not, would there be a suggested alternative at all please? Thank you so much for such a wonderful website.

I've been making Nigella's New Orleans Coleslaw quite a lot recently in individual portions and just wondered how long it would keep in the fridge if I made a big bowl at the weekend? Thanks Steph
