Let it Roll! 6 Amazing Swiss Roll Cakes for the Holidays

Let’s get you rolling with these Swiss Roll Cakes ♥

I failed big time the first time I made chocolate swiss roll cake. I followed all the steps, measured the ingredients correctly and yet my swiss roll turned out to be a disaster. What does disaster means in swiss roll? Cracks here, cracks there, cracks almost every where. If not because of the frosting, all those cracks will be showing in every angle of the cake. I even convinced myself that cracks are not a big deal since it can be covered by a frosting. I was devastated, disappointed and I told myself I would never make it again. That was a spur of the moment kind of reaction, because after few months I decided to give it a try again. I did my research and I did quite a lot of reading and I was finally able make my swiss roll cake crack free! It’s not difficult at all, since then, I decided to try different variations and I was able to successfully make 4 and I am predicting there will be more to come.
