Flower Genoise


My kids absolutely love Swiss Roll or Genoise. I always buy them but DH France swears it is easy to make. Just mix the ingredients (eggs, flour,sugar), bake, spread some jam or ganache and roll, that is all to it.







So okay, give me the recipe. But I wanted to experiment something I saw from what DH Germany showed me. Sakura on Genoise. And I just happened to have some Sakura flowers from DH Sweet Lake. But I wanted to kill two birds with a single stone. So I added some Pansies I planted. The results is beautiful. Although not perfect still pretty to look at.
