I have made this cake roll twice, and the first time was much smoother than the second time. The first time I put the filling in while the cake was still somewhat warm and this worked well. The second time I waited until the roll was completely cool (as the directions say to do), and the cake cracked and separated into three pieces! Next time I will do what I did the first time and add the filling while the cake is still a bit warm and flexible. Although delicious, the cake does taste plain, so the second time I added orage rind to the filling and it was delicious.
The taste was very good and I liked the density of the icing--had a nice, thicker texture. However, my cake did break apart in two places when trying to roll with the icing, it actually stuck to my towel in places, too, which made it cumbersome to complete as well. Because the icing was so dense, I WAS able to get it rolled up even with the two breaks--the icing helped keep it together, and once I rolled it and wrapped tightly in saran (I made mine without icing like a pumpkin roll) and refrigerated it, it didn't held together ok, but doubt I would make again because of the problems.
I made this for our Christmas party for my Sunday School Class. Everyone liked it. It is a little challenging to make, but I like a challenge. The video helps too. Watched it after I made it. woops. Taste very good and looks pretty on a dish too.
now that i've iced and eaten cake it is just OK. way too much work for it not to be wonderful.
perfectly fabulous! Impressive, delicious, and the video was really helpful!
This cake fell in pieces. I made it twice and it was a mess. I have made cake rolls for 20 years and this was the worse.
It was GREAT! We have made it twice. It is better than a little debbie swiss roll! Way better!
SO Yummy! Creamy, cakey awesomeness. Yes it did crack, but the glaze really does help. Will make again!
made this for christmas and it was the hit of the party! YUM
This turned our exactly like the picture and was delicious. The video of how to roll the cake was helpful, as this was the first time I had ever made a roll.
