Ask A Question


I cook for fun and relaxation - not into professional cooking. But I have a great supply of recipes - desserts as well as other goodies. If I don`t know of the recipe for which you are searching I enjoy trying to find new things. Please DO NOT ask me anything about FONDANT or MARZIPAN ... I don't have a clue - have never used them.

Experience in the area

I have cooked since I was 5 years old (over 50 years now) and enjoy cooking for family and friends. I decorate cakes for birthdays to weddings and everything in between.I collect recipes from around the world (I live and work overseas) and enjoy trying new foods and cooking techniques.

Dear Aisha,    I'm going to need more details:    1.  What color pan are you using and is it glass or metal?    2.  How deep is the pan?  No need to convert ... I'm well versed in metric.    3.  How big

There sure is, James.  It takes a bit more diligence, but it can be done.  What you want to do is set it to freeze in a stainless steel or glass mixing bowl.  The first round might take about an hour,
