Grade 12 Consumers Studies get Creative

This week our Grade 12 Consumer Studies learners got creative, making Swiss Rolls.

The origins of the term “Swiss roll” are unclear. The cake originated in Central Europe, but not in Switzerland as the name would suggest. It appears to have been invented in the nineteenth century, along with Battenberg, doughnuts and Victoria sponge. The shape of the Swiss roll has inspired usage of the term as a descriptive term in other fields, such as in optics and blues music.
