Layers of tangy raspberry jam, Swiss roll and fresh raspberries pair wonderfully together. You could even add a dollop of fresh cream on top for an extra treat.

  • 150g icing sugar
  • 1 jam-filled Swiss roll, approx 200g (7oz)
  • 200g raspberries
  • 6 jam jars or portable containers; we used 290ml Weck jars




  1. In a stand mixer, use the whisk attachment to cream the butter and jam until smooth. Add the icing sugar, a spoon at a time, and mix on low until incorporated. Increase the mixer speed and beat the mixture until pale and voluminous. Finally, whisk in 1tbsp water.
  2. Cut the Swiss roll into 18 thin slices. Spread each with buttercream. Place one into the base of each jar, buttercream facing up. Top with a layer of 5 raspberries, repeat and then top with a final layer of cake.
  3. Screw on the tops and they’re ready to go into a hamper. If made in advance, store the pots in the fridge.
