Guess the weight of the Cake

The aim of the competition is to guess the weight of the cake. Weights to be given in pounds and ounces, please. In the event of no one guessing the actual weight of the cake the person closest to it will win.

Prize for the competition will be the cake itself. It will be a traditional Christmas fruit cake, which will not be fed (no brandy in it cake after baking), iced or decorated in any other way. It will be posted at my own expense.

Entries are 1 pound.

Guesses are to be sent to me, and payment directly to Elaine (please pm for her addy)

Competition is to end on the Saturday the First of November at 9am,cake to be posted on Monday the third of November. Ready for the winner to icing and decorate.

Edit: i apologise to those who have entered, but due to a lack of response I am keeping this open for another week, so closes on the 9th, posted on the 10th

i thought that if you send money as a 'gift' (under personal) then there are no fees to pay? not recieved any myself this way, but I've been sending all of mine as 'gifts' recently...
