Swiss roll

Swiss roll

I had wanted to bake some heart shaped chocolate cakes for my dad's birthday!But by the time i finished cooking the special dinner, it was already past our dinner time & hence the baking plans were shelved for the week-end.
Top view!
So this week-end , i baked this swiss roll & filled it up with some raspberry jam & covered it with some raspberry flavoured whipped cream frosting( the tiny specks on the frosting are the raspberry seeds!)


This is the first time that i am baking a swiss roll & it was a huge success! Couldn't even wait for the frosting to set properly & already half the roll was gone!;)) Normally i leave the frosted cake overnight in the fridge to firm up,but we were in a hurry to taste it( that is why in the photos , the cream appears a bit smudged on the slices;) So after just half an hour in the fridge, it was taken out to have it with our evening cup of tea!:)
The swiss roll recipe is from here. The raspberry whipped cream frosting is from here.

Have a nice day!:)

To my mother: Remember, the other day i was telling you on the phone about the new cake pan that i had purchased, well, it was to bake this swiss roll!

the only thing is i used confectioners sugar instead of normal sugar! but just chill everything before otherwise the cream will just melt off!happy baking!&thanks for visiting my blog!
