HI Cathy, what is the size of your tray using. Btw, what is the size of the oven using?..Sandy

Cathysjoy said...

My tray size is 11 x 14". My oven is 60 x 60cm.

Sandy said...

I think your tray is normal and standard one. Mine oven cannot fir this size, so I bought 9x11 tray, small lor...not easy to roll..any comment? Sandy

Cathysjoy said...

I thought it is supposed to be easier to roll if your cake is smaller?

Sandy said...

Very interesting combination I have to say. Although both chocolate and sweet potatoes are my favorite, I've yet combined the two together. ....considering I have that book too, heehee.

Cathysjoy said...

Actually, the book uses yam fillings. I just changed it to sweet potato =)
