  1. Ok here is a winner if you are in to cakes - it goes down a treat EVERY single time I make it!!!! THE ULTIMATE CARROT CAKE!! 7 oz (200 g) wholemeal self-raising flour 3 level teaspoons mixed spice 1 level teaspoon bicarbonate of soda 6 oz (175 g) dark brown soft sugar, sifted 2 large eggs 5 fl oz (150 ml) sunflower oil grated zest 1 orange 7 oz (200 g) carrots, peeled and coarsely grated 4 oz (110 g) sultanas 2 oz (50 g) desiccated coconut 2 oz (50 g) pecan nuts For the syrup glaze: juice 1 small orange 1 tablespoon lemon juice 3 oz (75 g) dark brown soft sugar For the topping: 1 x 250 g tub mascarpone 1 x 200g tub fromage frais, 8% fat 1 rounded tablespoon golden caster sugar 1 heaped teaspoon ground cinnamon To serve: 2 oz (50 g) pecan nuts * Click on an ingredient to find out more You will also need 2 x 8 in (20 cm) sandwich tins, 11/2 in ( 4 cm) deep, bases lined with baking parchment. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 6, 400°F (200° C), then turn it down to gas mark 3, 325°F (170°C) when you have toasted the pecan nuts. First, place all the pecan nuts on a baking sheet and, using a timer, toast them in the oven for 8 minutes. Now chop one half roughly for the cake and the other more finely, for the topping later. Then don't forget to turn the oven down to gas mark 3, 325°F (170°C) for the cake. To make the cake, whisk the sugar, eggs and oil together in a bowl with an electric hand whisk for 2-3 minutes, then check that there is no sugar left undissolved. Now sift the flour, mixed spice and bicarbonate of soda into the bowl, tipping in the bits of bran left in the sieve. Then stir all this in gently, followed by the remaining cake ingredients. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared tins and bake the cakes on the centre shelf of the oven for about 30 minutes. They should be nicely risen, feel firm and springy to the touch when lightly pressed in the centre, and show signs of shrinking away from the sides of the tin. If not, give them another 2-3 minutes and test again. Meanwhile, make the topping by whisking all the ingredients together in a bowl until light and fluffy. Then cover with clingfilm and chill for 1-2 hours, until you are ready to ice the cakes. To make the syrup glaze, whisk together the fruit juices and sugar in another bowl and then, when the cakes come out of the oven, stab them all over with a skewer and quickly spoon the syrup evenly over the hot cakes. Now leave them to one side to cool in their tins, during which time the syrup will be absorbed. Then, when the cakes are completely cold, remove them from the tins. Spread one-third of the filling over one of the cakes, place the other on top, then cover the top and sides with the remaining icing. Scatter the remaining toasted pecan nuts over the top. Make sure you save yourself a piece, I spent ages getting together everything I needed and making the cake (it wasnt hard at all) and then it all got eaten by my housemates!!!!
  2. Hey guys, Just wondered if anyone had been skydiving at any Russian Dropzones? I was considering going to Aerograd near Moscow, website is: Yep, check out those jump prices!!! Would be a group going, not just me obviously...but does anyone have any views, news, facts or any advice? Thanks people! Beth

    Helmet colour!

    Hey people, After deliberating over whether this should go in the photography section, I figured it was a silly girly question and didnt deserve a place in there!! Has anyone got any pics of the FF2 2k composites helmet with the "eerie" paintjob...? It's not on their website, but I was offered it for no extra cost...(the pink one!!) Otherwise has anyone got any pics of this helmet in any colour other than black! Thanks in advance! Beth :) ------------------------------------------------------------ "This isn't's falling with style!" Buzz Lightyear - Toystory 1
  4. hey People! I just bought the pc109 camera from someone for a very good price, figured I could sell it on it it was no good for skydiving - I read through some previous posts regarding how good it is but they seemed inconclusive! I am wanting to use it with a 2K Composites FF2 helmet - is this possible? If there are already threads on this could someone point me to a good one?! Thanks! Beth PS Does anyone know what the 'E' on the end stands for? DCR PC109E
  5. The death toll just reached 114,000 - please please donate if you haven't already I have never seen a natural disaster of this kind before ever...they need so much help out there and its frustrating that it isnt happening fast enough I just hope they know how much the world is mourning for them and how much aid and support there has been donated...and dont think we dont care. Im really struggling to comprehend the true horror of this ------------------------------------------------------------ "This isn't's falling with style!" Buzz Lightyear - Toystory 1
  6. You really are pathetic....did you fail to note that someone has used the word FU*K in the subject of a recent post? Im very sorry if you are offended by my language, but frankly...I am offended by you. ------------------------------------------------------------ "This isn't's falling with style!"

  7. I think this argument is getting nowhere but all I want to say is that I agree with you in that if the natural event is in a place with no people or animals, communities etc then yes of course you would be awe inspired but it isnt a natural "disaster" then, its a "natural event" and surely this is where the line must be drawn.... I think what people here are getting upset about is that this wasnt the case in south east CANT just take the people away and take the suffering away, because its happened, to do that is to deny they exist. These people WERE there and DID die and at the end of the day people will have to agree to disagree...I personally find it hard to imagine this situation minus the people or the damage - as faber said: take away the natural disaster and what do you get? And my final point is that people in America or the UK or wherever there may be a disaster, tend to have insurance, access to medical aid or at least a government with for us it is maybe a little easier to laugh and joke, we have probably never experienced total loss - the people in Asia have lost everything and will probably never ever get anything back. Each to their own on this one people...there is little point in a bunch of skydivers getting at each other's throats...lets just try and remember the people who have nowhere to sleep tonight or nothing for breakfast tomorrow.... And with that said, I too am bowing out of this debate. ------------------------------------------------------------ "This isn't's falling with style!" Buzz Lightyear - Toystory 1
  8. I think it means that he's used everything in the mini bar and being the con man that he is...he wont be paying...its kinda of a piss take in that hes joking about screwing Benedict over by not paying his mini bar bill, when in actual fact they are robbing millions from the in grand scheme of things hes just taking the piss! Dont worry its not important...has nothing to do with Oceans 12! ------------------------------------------------------------ "This isn't's falling with style!" Buzz Lightyear - Toystory 1
  9. Im not being funny, but you are a fu**ing sure you wouldnt have enjoyed seeing all the dead bodies and the children being swept away from their parents, Im sure you wouldnt have enjoyed watching whole communities destroyed and lives ruined....Or is it just because it didnt happen in your country which makes it ok? If you have stupid sick opinions, please do us all a favour and keep them to yourself. ------------------------------------------------------------ "This isn't's falling with style!"

  10. I would have to say that it is a little more than "crazy shit"...this is a horrendous atrocity which cost many many people their lives and has destroyed some of the poorest parts of the world (sri lanka) with the death toll at 23,000 already and still rising. My thoughts and prayers go out to those who have lost friends and family in this nightmare. RIP Beth xx ------------------------------------------------------------ "This isn't's falling with style!"
