Here are some reviews from people who tried their hands on it –
- Absolutely gorgeous – surprisingly easy. Once I’d turned the baked sponge out and it had cooled, I covered it in a tea towel so it didn’t dry out until I was ready to roll it. The rolling is a bit scary but take it super-slow, using the paper to ease the cake over. Managed to do it without cracking so I was very happy. Another fabulous Valli Little recipe!

- This was not as rich as some Swiss rolls I have had, but then it took much less time and many fewer eggs and other ingredients. For a ‘need it quick’ recipe this is a good pick. I did find the chocolate base a bit thin and mine stuck a bit to the pan but after trimming up the edges and dusting with cocoa powder, the finished product looked and tasted quite nice. I added a touch of baileys to the whipped cream for extra zing.
