The ratio of people to cake is too big !!!

First Year of High School...   Form 1T... Home Ec. Room 17...      That was the last time I made a swiss roll!
So, I thought I was long overdue to give it another try. Of course, these days the humble swiss roll has been transformed into a 'roulade'.

This was really De.lic.ious. 
  The sponge just melted in your mouth.  The cream had a little hint of orange,
so you might want to add more zest or flavouring to yours.  I did mange to swirl the icing on top to give it
some resemblance to a log, but if you had some little decorations to put on there too, this could be a real show stopper.

I also made up a batch of mince pies - I hate mince pies, so I can make as many as I like, safe in the knowledge that I will not stuff my face with them!!!
BIG thanks to the wonderful Julie, who gave me the link to this White Chocolate Fudge recipe.
I added some dried blueberries to mine, and whilst it looks ( and tastes) wonderful, I think the crunch of the added nuts would have been better.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

Now this may seem strange I know, but I'm not a big fan of chocolate cake. Still I think I could be tempted with a slice of your roulade. Your fudge looks yummy too.
