Mini Coffee/Chocolate Log Cake

December 24, 2007

Had tons of Butter cream left over after Qinyu came over to bake on the 20th. So, in order to not waste it, I decided to make Coffee Swiss Roll on the 22nd! Using Aunty Yochana’s Recipe, after which I decided to turn it into a Log cake! *giggle* Aishi tried it, and commented it was nice~ =D Mum likes it too! Whee~ 1st log cake! SUCCESSFUL!


It was a massive baking day today! >.< spend the whole Christmas eve afternoon baking 3 kinds of cookies to giveaway! Luckily everything go according to plan and i was in time to wash up and get ready for Christmas gathering! Very blessed indeed! Even have time to jog. and now blog about this log cake! *giggle* Was thinking of what to make for bro’s gf this afternoon, Since review of my log cake was good, i therefore decided to make them to giveaway! Since she is another chocolate lover, i tweak the recipe to make a chocolate swiss roll. (^^,) Will they taste as good as the coffee one? I sure hope so! >.<
