About this Bake

I had a spectacular failure at pastry creme (had to omit the top layer of marzipan due to someone's allergy so that didn't help the final presentation). Was unfortunate enough when asked what had happened to say " I took the thing off and it all just flowed out". (thing = cake tin)

Top tip

If you're wondering whether the pastry crème has thickened enough, no.
