RECIPE: A no-bake Christmas log cake in 10 minutes

You don't need to be a seasoned baker to make this festive dessert. All you need are Swiss rolls, chocolate icing and snow powder.
 

Makes 1 log cake
INGREDIENTS
3/4 tub Wilton Chocolate
Decorator Icing
1 1/2 tbsp water
1 ready-made Swiss roll
1/2 small, ready-made Swiss roll
Sugar Christmas decorations
Snow powder

DIRECTIONS
1 Mix the icing with the water, a little at a time, and stir until smooth.
2 Place the large Swiss roll on a cake board. Using a spatula, spread a large spoonful of the icing mixture on it.
3 Cut the small Swiss roll into two to make the branches.
4 Place the two branches on or by the side of the large Swiss roll and spread the icing mixture over them.

6 Place the sugar decorations on the log cake. Top with the sifted snow powder.
