Variation: "Flower Power" Decorated Cake Roll

"Flower Power" Decorated Cake Roll 

We have been busy making fluffy sponge cake rolls filled with whipped cream and fresh strawberries. The outside of the roll is decorated with colorful flower imagery...all done with batter. There is no frosting or fondant involved. It is quite refreshing. It is not too sweet, because it is not loaded down with icing or fondant. We include a piping and color template to help make the job easier.

For months now, Sarah and I have been seeing darling decorated sponge cake rolls all over the internet. Unfortunately, most of the recipes we found, were in Japanese or Chinese, and we couldn't quite figure out the technique. It took us translating a recipe, rewriting it for home bakers, testing it, and 9 cake rolls, lots of frustration and angst to perfect it. In the end, it was worth it! We have other recipe-tutorials for this, the Cherry Blossom Cake Roll Recipe and the Autumn Leaves Cake Roll Recipe, with a different patterns and templates. We even have the Arabesque Patterned Sponge Cake Shapes Recipe.
NOTE: You must be very organized before you attempt to make this cake. You must have all your ingredients measured out and grouped together according to the mixing instructions in the recipe. While the recipe isn't hard to make, there are a lot of steps and it is easy to get confused the first time around. After you have made it several times, it won't be a problem, but the first time, you have to pay attention!
