Strawberry Roll


Took a quick snap of this recipe off one of BakerTan’s recipe books while we were baking together some time ago. No idea what’s the name of the book, so I’m going to leave it blank.

Made some adjustments to the recipe according to my pan size. Method is pretty straight forward, but the roll did not turn out as awesome. It was kinda dry for me. But I had fun rolling it hahah. Got greedy on the cream filling and they started vomitting out. Oops.

Anyway I got started on my Masters this weekend. Already starting to feel the stress with the group assignment due next week. Gaahhhh.
