My minimum cream loggie

Presenting my first log cake. It's made of chocolate sponge sprinkled with walnuts and the filling is buttercream. I decorated it with snow powder and the X'mas figurines were from last year's log cake.

Ingredients for the chocolate sponge....

Eggs 4 nos.
Caster sugar 80 gm
Cake flour 80 gm
Cocoa powder 20 gm
Cornoil 60 gm
Walnuts chopped 50 gm


Whisked eggs and sugar till light and fluffy.
Gently fold in sifted flour and cocoa powder.
Add in cornoil and mix well.
Sprinkle on top of the batter with chopped walnuts .
Pour batter into 10" by 14" baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.
Bake at 190 degree C for 10 mins.
Remove from the oven and cool on wire rack.
When sponge is cool, spread with buttercream and roll a tight roll from the longer side. Leave roll in fridge for about an hour.
Decorate with snow powder.
