    6. Pour into a greased and papered long cake tin and bake in a hot oven for 30 to 35 minutes till slightly golden on top.
    7. Remove from the cake tin and turn it out on a sheet of paper, which has been liberally sprinkled with icing sugar.
    8. Roll the cake tightly with this paper so as to form a log and keep aside to cool.
    9. Beat the fresh cream with 3 tsp of icing sugar and 2 tsp of cocoa powder till peaks are formed.
    10. Unroll the log cake from the paper and place on a suitable plate.
    11. Using a spatula, cover the cake with the icing.
    12. Then with a wet fork make long lines across the surface of the icing to create a bark effect on the log.
    13. Store in the refrigerator until required for serving.
    14. Before serving, dust with icing sugar and decorate with some fresh small leaves.
