  9. When the roll is springy to touch, take it out immediately.
  10. Invert the tin over a rack and tap sharply to remove.
  11. (This is most important because an over - barked roll will crack whilst rolling)
  12. While still hot, turn the cake out onto a sheet of greaseproof paper, sprinkled with caster sugar. Trim the hard edges.
  13. Spread the cake with filling and carefully roll it up.
  14. Wrap the roll in the greaseproof paper. Sprinkled with caster sugar.
