I made a lot of substitutions! I hate cocoa powder so used freshly ground chocolate. I didn't have black treacle so used golden syrup. I don't drink milk so I used home-made rice milk instead. I also used wholewheat flour and unrefined sugar. It still worked just fine and came out lovely. Also, I didn't have any lemon extract so used fresh squeezed lime juice and that was nice in the icing. Overall very nice. - 25 Oct 2011
