    Just finished baking, for me it took 2 hours. 35 minutes and 1 and a half hours of cleaning lol.

    Really good, i made the mistake of using tins which were too wide so they were a bit....crunchier round the edge, used a sharp knife and an upturned plate to compensate.

    You weren't kidding when you said the frosting hardens quick, made a pigs ear of that too but all part of the fun.

    Made as a surprise for mothers birthday tomorrow, thanks for the recipe!!! :)
