Welcome to part 4 of the fondant cat parade
The fondant cat parade tells the story in limericks of Dinah the Kitten, daughter of Daddy Grey and Mommy Cat, who likes to sleep and escape to Wonderland in her dreams. While in Wonderland, Dinah meets a variety of brightly coloured and fun fantasy kittens. The fondant cat parade illustrates some of the wonderful fondant art that appears in all the Sir Chocolate books.
Today, you will learn about Dinah in Wonderland.
Look out for part V of the fondant cat parade tomorrow when you will meet Small the Kitten. You can download the full illustrative PDF of the fondant cat parade here: https://robbiesinspiration.wordpress.com/dinah-in-wonderland-fondant-cat-parade/.
How to make a Swiss roll with a fruit and cream filling
200 ml self-raising flour
4 eggs, separated
150 ml castor sugar
50 ml cold water
2 ml salt
15 ml extra castor sugar
250 ml whipped cream
Fresh fruit of your choice, strawberries or blue berries are what I prefer to use
Preheat your oven to 220 degrees Celsius. Line a 20 x 23 cm Swiss roll tin with baking paper.
Beat the egg yolks and castor sugar until pale and mousse like. Add the water and mix through.
Sift the flour. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Add the beaten egg whites and flour to the egg yolk mixture. Fold in using a metal spoon until the mixture is smooth.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin. Tilt it carefully to ensure the mixture reaches the corners and is spead out evenly. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes until golden brown.
Remove the Swiss roll from the oven and turn out onto a clean, damp tea towel sprinkled with the extra castor sugar. Cut the edges off the cake, Make a small incision across the width at one of the short end of th ecake. Place a piece of baking powder on the cake. Fold the scored end over and, using the tea towel, roll the cake. Leave the cake in the tea towel to cool completely.
Add chopped fruit of your choice to the whipped cream. Carefully unroll the Swiss roll and spread with the cream mixture. Roll up and serve.

Contains five recipes that children can make under adult supervision
Hello, my name is Robbie, short for Roberta. I am an author with seven published children’s picture books in the Sir Chocolate books series for children aged 2 to 9 years old (co-authored with my son, Michael Cheadle), one published middle grade book in the Silly Willy series and one published preteen/young adult fictionalised biography about my mother’s life as a young girl growing up in an English town in Suffolk during World War II called While the Bombs Fell (co-authored with my mother, Elsie Hancy Eaton). All of my children’s book are written under Robbie Cheadle and are published by TSL Publications.
I also have a book of poetry called Open a new door, with fellow South African poet, Kim Blades.
I have recently branched into adult and young adult horror and supernatural writing and, in order to clearly differential my children’s books from my adult writing, I plan to publish these books under Roberta Eaton Cheadle. My first supernatural book published in that name, Through the Nethergate, is now available.
I have participated in a number of anthologies:
- Two short stories in #1 Amazon bestselling anthology, Dark Visions, a collection of horror stories edited by Dan Alatorre under Robbie Cheadle;
- Three short stories in Death Among Us, an anthology of murder mystery stories, edited by Stephen Bentley under Robbie Cheadle;
- Three short stories in #1 Amazon bestselling anthology, Nightmareland, a collection of horror stories edited by Dan Alatorre under Robbie Cheadle; and
- Two short stories in Whispers of the Past, an anthology of paranormal stories, edited by Kaye Lynne Booth under Roberta Eaton Cheadle.
