Yes I have carried on cooking after yesterday! I have wrapped the two cakes up in grease proof paper and aluminium foil and into tins and this morning have “fed” them with French brandy.
A few have asked about cooking the cakes with paper and brown paper round it. This is done to protect the cake from cooking unevenly as it has a long cooking time of four hours at 140°. Above are the two papers ready for putting into and around the tin. This is for the round cake and the bottom is cut to make it easier for the paper to go into the tin.
DH and Youngest are off to the 50m training pool this afternoon for two hours of swimming, so I can my ironing done then and hopefully tonight get my baby quilt, quilted!!!! Yeah.
