Thank you for your suggestions, I guess I will stick by milk, its so easy to get.
Getting evaporated milk where I live is next to impossible and for half and half, I usually use the substitute: Use 1/2 cup heavy cream and half cup whole milk to get 1 cup of half and half.
So milk it is.
I read nararabbit’s post. Cake failure is way too much of a heartache but its part of the game, I guess.
Also Gene, i still have not discovered the funda behind making my own recipes, even though I peruse Rose’s TCB like a textbook nearly everyday. Frankly, its like a code that I would LOVE to decode someday!
