How to cook
Prepare the strawberry Italian meringue buttercream filling
- Prepare the sugar syrup by heating the sugar and water in a pot and bring it to boil - remove from heat when the sugar is fully dissolved.
- In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until soft peaks form.
- Pour the cooled sugar syrup into the eggs and beat until stiff peaks form.
- Add in the butter and mix well.
- Fold in the strawberry puree, mix well and set aside.
Prepare the chocolate ganache frosting
- Heat cream in a pot, add in sugar and bring to boil.
- Put the chopped chocolate into a bowl and pour in the cream mixture, mix well and set aside.
Prepare the cake
- Preheat your oven to 200°C.
- Grease and line a Swiss roll tin with baking paper covering all corners.
- Sift and whisk together the flour, cocoa powder and honey.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until pale and frothy.
- Gradually add the sifted flour mixture and gently fold it into the wet ingredients until just combined - do not let too much air escape.
- Pour the cake batter into the tin and bake for about 10 minutes, until well-risen and firm when you touch it.
Assemble and serve
- Let the cake cool completely before spreading the strawberry Italian meringue buttercream.
- Holding one end of the cake with both hands, carefully roll the cake into a log while removing the baking paper at the same time.
- Using a metal spatula, spread the chocolate ganache frosting all over the cake.
- Run a fork down the length of the cake to add tree bark patterns on the cake.
- Dust with sifted icing sugar and decorate with strawberries or your favourite plastic decorations, like reindeer and holly leaves.
