Anyway, enough gushing about my love of this week's choice, and over to your beautiful creations. They all look absolutely delicious, and Mary was right in saying the cracking adds extra charm. I love them! A special thank you to our lovely judge Leta @attachmentmumma who has lent her time to us this week. Leta has written a great blog post about judging for us, which you can read here.
Leta says: "The outer layer of sponge is fabulously even and professional looking, and the cracking does indeed add charm. I really want to eat this one!"
Leta says: "A little too much icing sugar, but a good dark chocolate colour and nice thick layers of sponge and cream."
Leta says: "I would have preferred to see it close up, but a nice shape, with lots of yummy raspberries."
Leta says: "Looks as though the cream could have done with a bit more whipping, looks delicious with the fresh berry juice oozing out though."
Leta says: "Good thick, dark sponge, but could maybe do with a little more cream and a little less icing sugar. I like the strong red berry contrast with the very dark chocolate though."
Leta says: "Looks very professional; a good, tight roll. Maybe the cream layers could be more even."
Leta says: "Again, more evenly spread cream would be nice. Somehow looks very Christmassy and Yule log-like. Yum!"
Leta says: "Very nice-looking roulade, good rich sponge very tightly rolled. I like the criss cross effect of the cream. Very professional!"
Leta says: "Sponge a little too dense and the layers are rather thick. nice colour though."
Leta says: "Lovely combination of raspberries in the cream. Good dark colour, although the sponge looks a little dry."
Leta says: "I quite like this slightly triangular shape; good even layers of sponge and cream."
Leta says: "Very dark chocolate colour, nice addition of stars on the top. Cream layer a little too thin."
Leta says: "Shame its split so much, I wonder if the cream went in when the sponge was still warm too? The thick cream and raspberry bits make it look delicious all the same."
Leta says: "Another professional-looking one, nice light dusting of sugar and even sponge layers. Nicely rolled, but the cream layers are a little too thick in places."
Leta says: "Looks delicious in the bowl, good even layers of sponge and cream. I would have liked to see the whole thing too though."
"I think my winner has to be Cara's to have with a cup of tea, and Sew Appetising's to have with cream as dessert. I left it to Lara (2 yo) to decide between the two, and she went for...
