    Can i use cake flour instead?

  2. Aisha Ilyas says:

    Would the amounts for the cream cheese icing ingredients be enough for if I wanted to cover the whole cake with it or would I have to double or triple it?

    Hi Jemma,
    Congratulations on the birth of your baby…
    can I half this mixture as I only need to make a 6inch cake?

  9. Priscilla Yirenkyi says:

    Hi Jemma can you make a recipe with Margerine or vegetable oil

  10. Meilysa Rahmania says:

    How do you make 70gr of buttermilk? By using milk or cream?

  11. Min Asmaa says:

    I have to admit, I was worried that this cake might be dense, but after making it and following everything to the ‘T’, this cake was absolutely scrumptious! It was light, fluffy and everything you’d want!
    I made it for my family and after persistent demand had to make it again the next week.
    Also this is the cake that introduced me to the Cupcake Jemma Universe😂💕
    Stay Safe guys!

  12. Ib Is says:

  14. Joules S says:

    Made the cupcakes this week which were gorgeous. So now I need to make this cake yummy.

  15. Immar khan says:

    I’m so happy with how mine turned out, I decided to use some purple food colouring because why not, and made a 3 layer cake

  16. Bee Bunce says:

    Could I half all the ingredients and use two tins? Love your You Tube channel x

  17. Moestro Elton says:

    If i make 2 of 8 inch bake pan what should the recipe be?

  18. Marcus Cicero says:

    Why do you specify buttermilk using weight instead of liquid volume? Is there a way to convert this to mL or do you really weigh out the liquid? Please let me know Gemma. Many many thanks

  19. Dean Jackson says:

    Doubt my comments going to be seen on an older video. But would this recipe be suitable to cover with fondant for a celebration cake?

  20. Eva Ganley says:

    I have to times the recipe by 3.5 because im making my older brother a 14 layer birthday cake for his 14 Birthday.

  21. Jane Moseley says:

    Great recipe Jemma! Quick question, if I wanted to adapt this recipe for 3 x 8-inch sandwich tins, how best is it to calculate the amounts need please.

  22. Kellisha Wade says:

    Hi jemma, what cocoa powder is best to use
