    I think I made somethng similar to that SS. I followed this recipe.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/datab ... 4517.shtml

    It wasn't at all sticky and was more like a ginger cake but I can highly recommend it. Was really easy to make, but tasted top notch and came out reall well. I had to top it with buttecream icing and crumbled flake though.

    Will be making it again.
