Filling & Decoration

  1. Sieve the icing sugar into a mixing bowl, add the softened butter and vanilla.
  2. Beat together until smooth.
  3. Gently unroll the cold sponge, spread the buttercream evenly over the inside, then roll the sponge up quite tightly from the short end, making sure the filling stays inside. You can use the tea towel to help with this.
