Happy Christmas!


I've just made a very simple log cake with no extra frosting or any fancy decoration  as time is so limited for me nowadays. As usual, I used the same swissroll recipe of 孟老师, it turn out spongy soft just as good as last year attempt of my x'mas log cake


The log effect was made by the cocoa mixture then bake together with the sponge. With no extra frosting around the log, we don't feel so guilty of having a big slice. Lastly, wishing everyone have a wonderful Christmas and Happy 2012 !!



16 December 2011 - Make another log cake in vertical version which is quite the same as last year but with the same method of the above non-frosting method. Beside, thanks for everyone who remember me and drop by to leave your comments. Wishing you all have a wonderful Christmas and blessed 2012.

Hi, can i know how do you make the log cake effect? i would love to do this because i do not like to layer those thick frosting.This is so pretttyyy!

Kitchen Corner said...

Hi shilin,
Lined a baking tray with baking paper. Mix together the following ingredients in a bowl:
25g butter, 20g icing sugar, egg whites 25g, plain flour 20g and cocoa powder 5g.
Spread the mixture on the lined baking tray then use a spoon to draw the log effect and place into the fridge while you preparing sponge cake mixture. Once the sponge cake batter is ready, pour it onto the baking tray and bake.
Enjoy!!

Hey, Grace. It's been a long time since we last saw and spoke to each other. (I know we'd only met once. Lol.)

Been thinking about you and how you're doing. Very delighted to learn that you've got a new member in the family! The baby looks so adorable!

Happy motherhood to you! Congrats to you and your hubby, too.
