    Can substitute mixed berries for blackcurrants and corn syrup for golden syrup.

    This is absolutely delicious. But, I found that the first time I made it, it was only 4" high (which is logical when the strips are 4" wide.) So, this time I doubled the recipe and made the strips 6" wide. Much better! Also, I use my own Swiss meringue buttercream recipe as the one in Sweet made a huge mess and just didn't work for me.

    Beautiful both to look at, and eat. Can make the buttercream up to three days ahead and refrigerate, which I did and am glad I did, as it reduced the cook time on the day. Really interesting textured cake too. So many rave reviews from people who ate it!
