  1. hi there! just would like to ask if its ok to use a silicone cupcake mold since i dont have that tin molds.

    lastly, how long could i keep them?

    thanks so much!

    • Hi Leng,
      Yes you can use your silicone cupcake mold but you must grease and flour your molds generously. And since silicone is a poor heat conductor you can add about 5-10 minutes or wait until its lightly brown. And let it cool completely before removing from your molds to avoid the crust from breaking.

  2. Hi! Can you use white sugar rather than icing sugar for this recipe? Thanks in advance!

  3. Hi Lene, yes you can use caster or white sugar.

  4. Hi There ? Can Honey be a substitute for icing sugar or white sugar ? Thank you :)

  5. Do I need to refrigerate if I want to prolong life shelf or tight container would be sufficient?

  6. Hi, Can I prepare the dough few days in advance? how long is the estimated shelf life after baking? thanks.
