    Just had my apricot kernel oil delivered and look at this lovely sturdy box it came in! I've cut it down but left the sides quite high to increase rigidity. It's about 15cm x 22cm. If I reinforce the corners and line it, do ya reckon I could use it? Please say yes :) It's the last day of my holidays so i need to do something! IMG_0605.jpg IMG_0606.jpg

    I would give it a go. I used a box when I first started. It worked

    Make sure you line it and you'll be good to go!

    I also used a similar sized random cardboard box for my first batch and it worked.

    OK, I've done it, it's in its wee blankey-bed for the night and hopefully we unfold tomorrow for a look-see.

    I can't wait to see how it turns out! One of my first slab molds was a Ritz cracker box with the front panel cut out and reinforced with packing tape.

    Thanks Fig - I bought a silicone cake mat thingy to put in the bottom - have been wanting to try it for ever, but the silicone mat only arrived yesterday, so it was perfect timing.
