Ingredients
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 115g caster sugar, plus extra for dusting
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 75g plain flour
  • ½tsp baking powder
  • Dr. Oetker Gel Food Colour in Sky Blue, Ultra Violet and Black
  • 200ml whipping cream
  • 3tbsp blackcurrant jam
  • Cake Décor Gold Glitter Spray
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Grease and line a 22cm x 31cm Swiss roll tin with baking paper.

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract until doubled in size, pale and fluffy. Sift in the flour and baking powder, then fold in using a large metal spoon.

  • Divide the mixture between 3 bowls. Mix food gel into each, a drop at a time, so you have batters in blue, purple and black. Pour the batter onto the baking tray, alternating between colours, then swirl the tray to give a marbled effect; the batter should fill all the corners.

  • Bake in the oven for 12-14 mins until the sponge is risen and firm to the touch.

  • Place a sheet of baking paper on the work surface and sprinkle with caster sugar. Turn the sponge out onto the paper and leave to cool slightly.

  • Meanwhile, whip the cream till it holds its shape, then ripple through the jam.

  • Spread the fruity cream mixture evenly onto the cooled sponge, leaving a 2cm gap around the edge.

  • To assemble the Swiss roll, take a long edge, then, using the paper to hold it tightly in place, roll up the sponge, keeping the filling inside.

  • Remove the sponge from the baking paper and spray with the glitter.
