    Oops for the salt! Remember, I'm blonde... A pinch of salt is needed. Any syrup like maple or golden syrup. In line #34 I just meant that you can use a jelly (almost like a jam) or syrup wich will act as a glue. Thanks, this means you really took time to read the recipe.

    This cake looks GREAT but i had a few questions... line# 24 in the directions say to add salt to the frosting, but there is no salt listed in the ingredients for the frosting (it's only listed under the cake). how much salt do i add to the frosting? Also, what kind of syrup is used? Just maple syrup? Line #34 says "syrup (jelly)" but i'm not really sure what you mean by that. Thanks!
