Walnut cake edmonds

Can't find the right book. It was in a fairly old Edmonds book. Has walnuts, golden syrup, spices. I made it in layers with a filling. Does anyone have it. Think the book had measurements in metric and imperial to give idea of age.

I have a recipe in my Edmonds book. What do you want to know?

I was hoping to get the recipe. Grumpy with myself because I can't find the book

Just realised I was too busy being mildly grumpy and didn't say please, if you have time.

I need to perfect ganache and decorating. I'm sure that salted caramel and dark chocolate ganache will be tasty though.
