I don't often bake as the husband dislikes sweet things which means that I would have to eat everything myself. Nice idea perhaps but regretfully no good for my waistline or cholesterol levels. However, my imagination has been captured by these "deco roll-cakes" that I have been seeing on Japanese sites over the past year or so......

Well, I thought I would give it a go and even though my 1st attempt is so far away from perfection that it is laughable, I am pleased with it.
It tasted lovely, not too sweet and very light and fluffy!
I took inspiration from fallen sakura petals floating in water. I created the petals free-hand using the back of a teaspoon. The creases that accidentally appeared on my cake were the result of my failure to lay out my greaseproof paper properly before hurling the mixture in.
However, I think this adds to the water effect (sort of?).
There are many recipes online in Japanese and having read through a bunch of them (with Hiro's help), we combined a couple and hope to improve on them before posting a simplified recipe for anyone to use!
Be back soon, hopefully with a prettier roll-cake!
