This started life as a jam and white chocolate roly poly. My Good Food magazine came with a yummy looking dessert on the front and I took it round to Mum’s house to show her. “That looks nice”, she said, “what’s in it?”. “Well, it’s got suet in it…”. This was thoroughly rejected. So I decided to turn it into swiss roll instead. (more…)

Did I mention my sister graduated last month? With a 2:1? She’s very smart. And here is another reason she’s smart: to celebrate, she requested Tiramisu and Banoffee cupcakes. Yum yum yum. (more…)
