Last weekend was spent with a number of ‘Bake-Off’ fans. Whilst I try to avoid the TV programme, I am up for a challenge. So Andrew and I both tried to make Swiss Rolls in a private bake-off challenge.
Unfortunately we both ate them before we could compare tastes, so judging has to be by comparing the photos. Andrew had the advantage of a skilled photographer, whilst all I could manage was an over-exposed self-timed effort.
“It was a Mary Berry recipe and I filled it with buttercream xiong and myrtille jam.”
“It was my own recipe and I filled it with whipping cream and blueberry jam.” (The jam may have been a bad choice due to large lumps of blueberry that make the filling look uneven – that’s my excuse!)
Sue says she wants a re-match. I wonder why.
