I know it’s still October, I know I’m still on the Clean/Healthy Eating Challenge, I KNOW that I didn’t eat any of this cake. Even though I wanted to. haha. 🙂 I am in love with these Swiss Roll like cakes! Peeling the paper away to reveal the designs after each one is baked it like magic! It’s so cool, well to me it’s so cool 😉
I made a Chocolate “pumpkin” Swiss roll cake for #SundaySupper one week and everyone loved it . So I started thinking of other designs to put on these little rolled cakes! Pink Ribbons! Of course! It’s October, It’s breast cancer awareness month! This little cake would be perfect for a Breast Cancer Awareness Bake Sale/ Fundraiser in my opinion. I’m pretty sure it could get you some donations,well I would buy it anyways haha
I made this cake yesterday when Crystal was over here with her little girls, so I sent this on home with them so that I wouldn’t be tempted to sneak a taste. I already know what these cakes taste like so it’s no need for me to taste them right now anyways. It is indeed a lot of icing/frosting in these cakes, but sometimes I feel like the sponge cake needs a lot of icing.
But you could play around with different icing recipes if you needed to. I’ve been using canned icing for these that I’ve been making since I’m just making them for fun, but I’d probably make the icing in this post <– if I were making them for a party or something.
I’ve included a link to the template that I made for the ribbons. You can get it here. Print that ribbon template out and place that under the wax paper.
- Don’t over bake. If you over bake this cake it will crack when you try to roll it. I baked mine for 7 minutes.
- For my Filling I combined a can of cream cheese icing and a can of caramel apple icing in the bowl of a mixer and whipped them together on high for 2-3 minutes. But you could also use the filling recipe on this roll cake recipe (Click Here).
- Try different shaped and patterns for your cakes! Hearts, Smiley Faces, Clovers, Gingerbread men! The possibilities are endless!
- Fill and roll the cake while it is still warm!
