I'm no cook, have never pretended to be, but somehow I've been asked to provide a chocolate ripple cake for tomorrow. Deep breath, this should be easy right?

So, the recipe says to leave it for 6 hours minimum to make the biscuits go soft like cake. But if I make it tonight, ready for the evening meal tomorrow, is that too long?

I must be the daftest person when it comes to the kitchen  blush.gif

I just made one shaped like a candy cane, with stripes of the cream tinted red and a crushed up candy cane sprinkled on top.

It sounds better than it looks, but at least chocolate ripple cake can never taste bad!

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
