    How do you stop a Christmas cake from burning? 28th Nov 06 at 1:57 PM
    While I was out shopping today I had a "brain wave" lol and decided to buy one of those packs to make your own christmas cake from the Weigh Shop.

    Only problem is the one and only time I tried to make a christmas cake (about 8 years ago) It was a total disaster, it burnt on top and was soggy in the middle. I think part of the problem was I didn't have the ingredients right, hence buying the "pack" everything you need all ready weighed out for you.

    Any tips will be gratefully received, I plan to let the kids help me make it at the weekend.

    I know I've left it a bit late, but I'm going away fro Christmas so won't be back to eat it until well into the new year so that gives me a bit extra time (just like the idea of making my own cake )
