    We just moved to the UK and I was having trouble converting my own recipes. I didn't have/know about caster sugar so just used regular granulated sugar and it was great. My husband needed a cake to take to work and this was perfect! His co-workers asked if I could make it again the next day, so it was a big hit! Thanks!  -  24 Sep 2013
