    I am getting married and my budget is nil.  My Mother in Law to be is a great cook.  The bakery that I love offers this super rich and wonderful thing called a charlotte.

    Anyone have a suggestion for two recipes for her to copy - I love the richness of this thing called a "charlotte".

    I cannot afford to order from this company and sadly they are too far away also even if the funds were available.

    Please help this bride to be out.

    Thank yoU!

      Not sure which kind of charlotte you are talking about.
      Here is a recipe for a charlotte cake from cooks.com
      just copy and paste these links:

      Just typing in charlotte cake on google yielded lots of different variations.
      good luck!

          Any idea of what "caster sugar" is?

            I learned a new cooking term - very cool!

            "Unrefined sugars: These are made from pure unrefined sugar cane. This means the colour and flavour that is naturally present in sugar cane has not been refined out to make the sugar pure white. The most recent addition to this range is unrefined icing sugar. I love its flavour and pale-caramel colour when made into icing, and so would now tend not to use white. Golden caster sugar is another favourite I use for baking ."
