This one is for my best friend and her family. The cake is a Mary Berry recipe (self-rising flour, caster sugar and eggs) and the filling is butter sugar (icing sugar and butter). I don't really like using fresh cream and jam because they make the cake soaky and I need the cake to last for a bit longer. So, butter sugar is a good filling. But, remember, the less filling the cake has, the more ice-cream you can eat with the cake! Oh...and I put the Swiss Roll on a plate that I brought for the family.
And this is a Chocolate Roulade. Again it's a Mary Berry recipe. It is a flourless cake. The first time I did it, I failed epically! I skipped a step and the cake collapsed when I rolled it! That's what happened when you don't read the recipe thoroughly! So this time, I read the recipe again and again and again. It worked! Yay!! The Chocolate Roulade has character because it has cracks! But my friend and her husband love it! Awesome!
And these are the cookies that I baked. This is the first time I used the Lighthouse Cakes, Biscuits and Pastry Flour. I just used the Stunning Short Bread recipe on the packaging. I used this recipe three times already, and it's awesome! Simple! Easy! Yummy! I bought some paper bags from the shop, they are great! Such a nice tiny gift I reckon!
