Swiss rolls are the kind of fancy cake you make when you want to impress someone. But making a fancy cake is too much of a task! Isn’t it? The answer is NO, not all the fancy looking cakes are difficult to make. All you need is right technique and right quantity of good quality ingredients.
But I am not a baker, some of you might say this? Well, neither am I :D. I am not a natural baker and I don’t have a very prominent sweet tooth as well. But! I have a family who loves desserts so I bake to satisfy their sweet tooth. Not that I mind eating a slice or two with my evening tea too much 😛 That said, I do not like to spend to much time so I take advantage of machines which allows me to spend less time and gives me good results.
