This impressive-looking cake is actually a simple trick: turn a Woolies Swiss roll on its end, ice, then coat in chocolate shards.


  • 200 g Woolworths 70% dark chocolate drops
  • 200 g Woolworths white chocolate drops
  • 280 g Woolworths vanilla icing mix
  • 530 g Woolworths caramel Swiss roll
  • cocoa powder, for dusting

Cooking Instructions

1. Melt the chocolate drops in the microwave in separate bowls in 30 second bursts, stirring every 30 seconds until perfectly smooth.

2. Spread the chocolate onto separate baking trays lined with baking paper. Chill until firm.

3. Prepare the icing according to package instructions.

4. Stand the Swiss roll upright then coat it in the icing. Break the chocolate into shards and begin covering the Swiss roll, overlapping the white and dark chocolate shards until the whole cake is covered. Dusting with cocoa before serving.
