Expert tip

Pour the first quantity up to 3/4 of the tube. When the mixture has cooled down (only a few minutes) a small hole will appear in the centre, pour in the rest of the quantity up to the rim.

Once the mixture is poured, use a paper towel to soak up the excess in the cup. DO NOT put under water until you have wiped it clean. Clean with very hot, soapy water.
