What could be more irresistible than the heady combination of strawberries and cream?
Talking about strawberries and cream, always transports me back to the days when I was newly married in Pune (really seems ages back). I used to wait anxiously for hubby dear to come back home from his classes (he was doing his BE from the College of Military Engineering) and we would just hop on to our Kinetic Honda and set out for long drives to Munshi dam, Panchgani, Mahabaleshwar and stop enroute at the strawberry farms where they served excellent freshly plucked strawberries with cream in a tall glass.Yummy !! Still can't forget that taste. Those were indeed the days...unburdened by any worries and without a care in the world - just surviving on fresh air and love (also because back then I didn't know how to cook.)
Coming back to the present and to the strawberry and cream roll I made - being my first attempt at making a swiss roll, sadly, wasn't as perfect as I would have liked it to be, but the scrumptiously delicious taste made up for all the other flaws.
The Swiss roll cracked in the middle when I was trying to roll it up - Thank God there was whipped cream to camouflage the gaping crack - But I will definitely have a go at making it again and this time with a bit more perfection.
