  1. Ha! I love the little flags. This looks adorable and like it would taste fantastic. I can’t wait to find the perfect themed party for this little number.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful combination! I am always quite nervous about rolling up the swiss roll hence I never attempted to make one at home. This one is beautifully done!
