My first successfull swiss roll!!!!! You know when people always say “third time lucky”? Well, that has never applied to me…for some reason, sometimes the third time is still a fail and it’s the “fourth time lucky”, even fifth…or even no time lucky =P haha. BUT this is my third time making a swiss roll and it’s the first time where it hasn’t cracked! YAAAAAY! I was sooooooo happy when I could roll it up without breaking. I literally danced on the spot clapping..seriously. I didn’t do my victory dance though (yes, I actually have a victory dance)…just a little jiggle. haha =P
Can you see the pink dots? I tried to pretty it up a bit so I just added some pink colouring and dotted the baking sheet first. I think I baked the dots for a little too long because some kind of fell off. oh well..
I didn’t make as much batter this time so it wasn’t as thick as my previous attempts, so maybe that’s why it didn’t crack. I’m not sure if this is the sole reason, nor do I think it is, because I see others with thicker ones and their’s roll fine. But anyway, I’ll continue to experiment! Would love to make beautiful swiss rolls like so many other bloggers!
My family and I don’t really like buttercream, and I didn’t have any cream so I just filled it with blueberry jam so that I could try rolling it. hehe.
Thanks for reading! ^^ Hope you all enjoy the rest of the week!!
