i haven't tried this yet but i'm allergic to almonds - can almond extracted be substitued with vanilla extra? - 19 Sep 2013


Don't know what I am doing wrong but didn't work for me; too runny & sponge cake left sitting in pool of icing because it ran off the cake. Tasted good though. - 21 Sep 2014
