I forgot to mention : Cut the wafer paper so that a thin edge of the dough
stays free of it (to press the outer dough roll onto).

Plus : If you substitute the cassis jam with a sweeter jam (like apricot),

(For others who might have to look it up as I did, wafer paper is also called
rice paper or ostia. It is starch based and edible.)

Just make sure that you get the thin one. There's a thicker version for
decorative baking.
