I haven't got round to trying it yet but was going to use the recipe on the page above. . Someone here posted the page, great ideas on it. Could your oven be too hot?

Could be that, thanks Debby. Shall try again tomorrow if possible without my mum noticing (she's here now for Christmas and it was supposed to be for her from M!) Thanks again :)

just do it on a low setting and for a minute at a time - it can quite quickly burn if you're not paying attention!
