Hey, I bumped into your lovely photo on Flickr! Nice shot! And, never say you're bad at baking, etc. ... You're as good as anyone else, and it takes time to show everyone's talents! You're no exception to that rule!

Happy baking and embrace yourself into the inexplicable world of baking!!!

You can use a 8" or 9" tin. Yup, can omit Baileys if you do not have that.
