I made a yule log today and rolled it but it broke on the first roll and the second...
I managed to save it but how do i roll it so it doesn't break. I was rolling it on paper.
I have to make one for a raffle next week and i want it to look brilliant

I had the picture attached on the first one but its not there

It will break/crack no matter what you do.

Are you icing it? That will hide a multitude of sins.

It will break, or at least crack. If you sit the sponge on a tea towel and then use the tea towel as your rolling aid - pulling up and over firmly but gently - that will help, but otherwise don't fret - make a good job of the icing and no one will know.

Did you roll it while it was still hot and attached to the paper and leave it to cool that way?

Wet tea towel , grease proof paper sprinkled with caster sugar. Flip out on ... Hot from oven and remove baking paper from tin. Then roll by pulling top f tea towel towards you!
