Ok, I didn't have the self raising flour so I used plain with baking powder. And I didn't have icing sugar so I blitzed some ordinary sugar. I didn't photograph it before I decorated it as it looked as though it should be in the bathroom - if you get my drift. It doesn't look much better decorated as it has a shiny, lumpy quality that didn't get any better with knife smoothing. Putting it on a wooden platter may have helped the composition of the shot but I'm not convinced. Under the suspect icing is a homemade Swiss roll. (I didn't have greaseproof paper which didn't help the rolling up after it had baked!)
Anyhow - Happy Yule Log Day to all.
PS DH thought it was delicious. Phew, saved.
PPS Look here for the first one I made. It didn't look any better then!
