what to do with a lot of leftover whipped cream...

My sister made this cheesecake. After she had applied a base coat of the whipped cream, I piped some of the cream on the cake and the roses are my first ever, as she magnanimously let me experiment. It turned out pretty good, I had been a bit scared of trying it since it looked too complicated, but it was surprisingly easy!

But because of some funny miscalculation we ended up with a lot of leftover whipped cream with a fair amount of blackcurrant syrup in it, which was the flavour of the cake.

To use up the cream I decided to tweak the recipe of Nidhi's Mocha Roll. The result was pretty good. I guess I can call it Blackcurrant Cream Roll.

Here's the Recipe of the Mocha Roll from Nidhi's blog.

My variation was that I added a teaspoon of blackcurrant syrup instead of the coffee in the cake batter, and later used the leftover whipped cream, which was simply cream, sugar and blackcurrant syrup.
