Please could someone give advice on how to rescue this cake?The rest of the cake is fine, it is just burned on the top.TIA

Cut the top off nice and level can turn it upside down then, often do this to make a fruit cake level to ice with fondant icing. For future reference if your cake is getting a bit brown on top pop a piece of tin foil on top of it to stop it burning, or turn oven down a little.

sittinga folded newspaper on the top is another way of stopping it from scorching..

says she who almost had the same problem. I am waiting for a new stove so I might just leave the making of any more until I get one. This one is too temperamental.
