I could feel the breeze on my face, it was bending branches in the trees. I woke up to my amazed to see the rabbit dressed and had a watch, ran by at full speed, muttering "I'll be late!". There were colourful flowers in the countryside, a sleepy-looking caterpillar laid on a giant toadstool, a cat curled up on the tree's branch.
The Queen of Hearts ate the log with purple swirl without hesitating! What?! ...yes, you are in the Wonderland.
Manage to get a copy of 孟老师's roulade recipes from Kinokuniya, swing into action as I have been long wanting to bake her roulade. For the sponge I'm using the recipe for Chocolate log that used France Style Egg Separation Method 法式分蛋海绵蛋糕。As the filling I'm using her method for Yam Swiss Roll as it doesn't require to whisk the whipped cream, this really save me time on cleaning up :)
The texture of this roulade is difference from my previous roulades because of the method and almond powder used. The sponge is soft and dense, the taste is better with almond. Oh, dear! time to wake up from my wonderland.
Recipe adapted from 孟老师 with changes to the filling.
