Lemon and cream cheese has always been one of my favourite combination. So I decided to incorporate it into another one of my recent favourite - a Swiss roll. While I was back at my parents' place, mum and I made a couple of Swiss rolls and the more I made 'em, the more I... Continue Reading →


One of the most annoying thing about the coffee Swiss roll from last week was how the thin layer of "cake skin" peeled off when I remove the paper used to wrap the cake. So I decided to revert to dusting the paper with cocoa powder to prevent it from sticking. And to keep it... Continue Reading →

Swiss rolls always conjures up warm childhood memories. It's also one of the few things I bake that, can be done a relatively short time.

Adapted from this recipe, this took less than hour to make. I used some Swiss meringue vanilla buttercream I... Continue Reading →

Another attempt at Martha Stewart’s chocolate swiss roll. But instead of the whipping cream that came with the original recipe, I made some chocolate whipped cream adapted from Rose Levy Beranbaum’s Cake Bible, which was absolutely delicious! Makes enough to fill a 9 x 13 inch swiss roll with spare 1 ¼ cup heavy cream... Continue Reading →

It always amazes me how one can bake a thin layer of cake, and then, roll it up. I thought it’d be awfully difficult. I mean, rolling a layer of cake into a tube. But, Martha Stewart said there’s nothing to be afraid of. So, I decided to give it a try. I cut everything... Continue Reading →
