Its finally up! very professionally done, Cathy! Can consider putting bits of chestnut into the cream for texture contrast. But you mentioned to me before that the puree is quite grainy as well with chestnut bits yeah?

Yeah! Blogger finally done with their maintenance! Yah there are chestnut bits in the puree so I whisk it till smooth else will have problem piping the cream out on top. ;)

Your cake looks so good! I've always wanted to make chestnut cream- but that would mean making chestnut puree (it's hard to find here) so I've never quite gotten around to it :D But I love chestnut, so I would love this cake!

DG said...

Gorgeou! Btw Cathy, did you buy the chesnut puree or you made your own puree from the package chestnut?

lena said...

 i bet the chestnut puree is really delicious and your swiss roll looks perfect for me!

cathysjoy said...

Thanks for your kind words. Yes, it is simply yummy ;)

cathysjoy said...

Try this, you will love it ;)

cathysjoy said...

I bought chestnut puree from cold storage. I used the package chestnut as decor on top of the Swiss roll & wrapped as fillings. ;)

cathysjoy said...

Is there canned puree chestnut sold in supermarket over there?
