My memories of cooking in school are not good at all. I can clearly remember what I was asked to cook so recoil is not the issue here, the problem is that I am a rubbish, cook! I will never forget the day I was told to make a Swiss Roll. It was looking OK until the moment came to present it to the teacher and mine rolled out in front of him and ended up as straight as a piece of paper again with everyone around me laughing. So if I can’t make a good one myself maybe it is best that I just bring you images of how a “Cake Roll” should look like, and so without further ado I bring you…
Top 10 Best Cake Roll Recipes
10 – Don’t mess with the classics
This is what everyone will think of when they think of a cake roll, and with a great guide on how to make it in the ink almost, anyone could make it. Unless you are me then you don’t have a hope. But there are many, many different kinds of cake roll out there as you will see in the others that are still to come.
9 – Purple People Eaters cake of choice
What you are looking at is a cake roll made from a rather unusual ingredient called “grated purple yam” and it if you want to make a cake roll that is a little more unusual than the rest then this is it.
8 – Pumpkins and Pecans together at last!
I have to admit that I have never ever tasted anything with Pumpkin in it. (or maybe I have and just not known) But I can make up for that by road testing this rather amazing cake roll that is finished to perfection and offers a great recipe guide in the link
7 – As strange as they come, but tasty to the end
This rather unusual looking cake roll just had to be included because of how unique it is. And while it is not to everyone tastes for those that do fancy having a go at making one there is a good recipe guide in the link.
6 – When Cake Roll and Art Collide
This is one impressive looking cake roll! And while it does require a rather high skill level it is even harder to make than you might think because there is no recipe or build guide in the link, but it does contain quite a few more of these “Kawaii” cake rolls that are all well worth a look.
5 – “You wouldn’t like my cake when it’s angry!”
Apparently, this is quite a common cake roll in various countries around the world, but I have never seen a green swiss roll in all my life! Sadly you do have to visit on the link and E-Mail the maker if you want the recipe but it might well be worthy of the effort!
4 – Getting to the root of the problems
This unique cake roll is in fact made with “Taro Root” and while it doesn’t sound as tasty as the others it is one of the most amazing and unique cake rolls you will ever see and that makes it well worthy to be on this list.
3 – Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Black Polka Dot Cake Roll!
I white sponge cake roll with chocolate polka dots!?! Oh yes, that is exactly what this is, and with a fairly simple to follow step-by-step guide in the link it means we can all try to make one! Well, you could, but I would make a hash of it as always.
2 – Surely a cake roll this good is illegal!
We have seen some good-looking cakes in this post so far and while this one will never win an award for looks just the mere fact that it is a cake roll made with Oreo’s makes it just about as epic as cake rolls get!
1 – Lady in red!!! Would you like a piece of cake, my love?!?
It just has to be said that red raspberries will never look any better than this. The cream, the fruit all squashed into the best-looking cake roll you will ever see in your life. So do visit the link and get making me one! …I mean you, make yourself one.
