    Nigella's Butterscotch Layer Cake 19th Oct 11 at 5:36 PM
    Hello lovely ladies (and gentlepeeps!)
    A few days ago (on one of the 'Tough threads) somebody mentioned Nigella's Butterscotch Layer Cake.
    I dug out my copy of Domestic Goddess and bought the ingredients.

    I think I have a disaster - or maybe it's meant to be like this.....

    I have the two sandwich bases in the oven as we speak. However, the caramel bit looks and tastes awful.

    I know she says be brave because caramel has to be burnt to be caramel, but having tasted mine, it tastes bitter and burnt. I haven't added the cream cheese yet. Will this save it?

    WHAT HAVE I DONE WRONG?
