coffee swiss rollsuddenly felt like painting the “Guxxi” logo onto my swiss roll.. unfortunately, the design did not come out well. i had to be very careful not to paint the designs too thin as they will crack easily when i remove the parchment paper from the design after baking… and the result? the alphabets look more like E than G…. sigh… oh well… _φ(°-°=)
