  1. Dear Denise, using loaf tins would certainly work. The issue with quantities is the actual volume of your loaf tins. I have two different shapes of 2lb loaf tins. One is deep but shorter and the other is shallower but longer. I would suggest you find the volume of your usual 12″ tin (which will be 12 x 12 x depth). Then you can find the volume of your loaf tins in the same way and multiply by 4. If the volume of all four is the same as your 12″ you an use that recipe. Let me know if you need any more help.

  2. Hi Sheila, I’ve learnt so much reading all the comments on your site. Could you tell me what quantity of mix I need to make the rich fruit cake in a 2lb loaf tin? In the past, for quickness, I’ve used a 12inch square and cut it into 4 x 4inch cakes – 1 each for us, our 2 daughters and our son. They’ve not been very successful (dry/burnt round the edges and quite dry in the middle). This year, I thought I’d try the loaf tins – and bake them all at the same time. Would this work?

  3. @Susan – Sorry but I am not aware of anything else you could pipe to create a filagree effect. Mexican paste could be used to cut out pieces and make your pram, but nothing will be as delicate as royal icing.

  4. Not a comment but a question really. Doing a Christening cake and a Royal iceing filagree pram,which I am finding extremely delicate. Wondered if you know of anything that I could pipe but is much sturdier than Royal iceing?
    I was thinking on the lines of thinner Mexican paste, but don’t know if that’s feasable.
    Thank you in anticipation.
