But it sounded like such a good idea at the time

We've got lots of jam to use up, so I decided to make a jelly roll. I'm not sure exactly how it happened, since this it the first time I've ever attempted one, but the thing turned out beautifully - behold, the perfect jelly roll!
Well, it's perfect as long as you don't actually taste it. I'm not sure which ingredient is to blame, but this thing smells and tastes like wet dog hair. It's actually bad enough that Jason (who doesn't care for jelly-filled things to begin with) won't even taste it. I don't know if my eggs were slightly off, or the vanilla is bad, or what, but Jesus H. Christ, this thing is awful.

But very, very pretty.

Looks perfect! But - the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
Incidentally I fill my rolls with whipped cream and fresh strawberries or raseberries. K's mom
