It did not come exactly as nice as yours because I was afraid of breaking it during rolling and maybe I did not 'close’ quite, but to be the first roll of my life I would say that it is successful and has been very successful! Is’ really a cool and pleasant sweet very suitable for the season. Thanks!

Thank you and congratulations for the site and for recipes!
