Place over simmering water and wait for chocolate to melt. When it is melted, beat take off the heat and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Beat 2 of the egg yolks, first on their own, then in with the chocolate. Let it cool for a while then whisk 2 of the egg whites until stiff and fold them into the chocolate mixture. Cover the bowl and chill for 1 hour. 3. Place the remaining egg yolks into a basin and whisk until they start to thicken, then add the caster sugar and continue to whisk until the mixture starts to thicken slightly. Now mix the cocoa powder into the egg yolk mixture, then, using a clean bowl, beat the egg whites to a soft peak then carefully cut and fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture then pour into the prepared tin. Bake for 25 mins and then leave to cool. 4. Spread the chocolate mousse over the roulade and then whip up the cream softly and spread that over it. Roll into a cylinder shape and top with icing sugar. Taste My roulade was very nice but I didn't put enough cream or mousse into it so it was a bit bland. Texture My roulade had good texture because it had a crusty outside and a soft and creamy middle. Appearance My roulade looked good because it had the nice look of a cracked outer part and has a good cross section.

Appearance My cheesecake looked nice when it was in the tin but it collapsed a little bit when I tried to take it out, not as much as the first one I made though.

Blueberry Chesecake Ingredients 500g Mascarpone Cheese 500g Digestive Biscuits 30g Butter 200g Blueberries Vanilla Extract 30g Sugar Method 1. Crush the biscuits and melt the butter. Add the melted butter to the crushed Digestives and press down into a spring fold cake tin. Put the mixture into the fridge until you need it again. 2. Mix the cheese and the sugar together whilst and add the vanilla extract to the mixture. 3. Add the blueberries to the cheese mixture and spread evenly over the biscuit base and chill for 2 hours. Taste I found that the cheesecake was quite sickly because I accidentally put too much vanilla in. Otherwise I think it would have tasted very nice. Texture The texture of my cheesecake was quite bad because there was too much liquid in with the cheese mixture so it ended up at about the same consistency of single cream. Appearance My cheesecake looked nice when it was in the tin but it collapsed hugely when I tried to take it out.
