  • Deviyani Srivastava6 months ago

    Hi Rita, you need a normal OTG for it. I don't know what grille oven is. If you have been using that to make your cakes then I don't think there should be any problem.

    how to make sugar syrup.

  • Deviyani Srivastavaa year ago

    No, Cadburys chocolate melts very fast. But if no other option then use that.

  • prabha priya na year ago

    thanks can we freeze cadburies dairy milk and grate them ??

  • Deviyani Srivastavaa year ago

    @Prabha you get morde chocolate slab. Chill it then grate or just chop with a knife. For greasing the tray I would suggest an odourless oil or unsalted butter also works well.

    how to make sugar syrup

  • Deviyani Srivastavaa year ago

    Isha, you can bake the cake as per your convenience but since I have only baked in an oven I can't say how it might turn out. I would say you follow your method of making the cake and do the final assembly as I have, it should come out well. 😊

  • Isha va year ago

    I don't have otg .. for this I have to purchase

  • Deviyani Srivastavaa year ago

    You can make your own icing sugar. Just grind your normal sugar in a blender. Normal sugar won't mix easily.

  • Surbhi Guptaa year ago

    instead of icing sugar can we use normal sugar

  • Deviyani Srivastavaa year ago

    Please use a normal oven and not a microwave.

  • Deviyani Srivastavaa year ago

    Normal oven is good. Pooja you can try other methods like cooker etc but it won't be the same.

  • Deviyani Srivastavaa year ago

    I baked it in my OTG oven.

  • Isha va year ago

    convection or microwave?

  • prabha priya na year ago

    should we use microwave or normal oven
