I came across this gem of a recipe on U-Taste, and let me tell you, it's like discovering a secret garden of delectable delights. Trust me; you'll want to bookmark this one for your next baking adventure!

As an experienced chef with over five years of culinary exploration, I've always had a soft spot for desserts that not only taste heavenly but also look like works of art. This Flower Roll Cake fits that bill perfectly. So, let's roll up our sleeves and dive into the world of delicate sponge cake and luscious cream:


For the Cake:

- 4 large eggs (because we want that airy texture)

- 1/2 cup granulated sugar (for sweetness)

- 2/3 cup cake flour (for that perfect sponge)

- 1/4 cup milk (for moisture)

- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted, for richness)

- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (for that lovely aroma)

For the Filling:

- 1 cup heavy cream (for that lush creaminess)

- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar (to sweeten the cream)

- Assorted food coloring (for those vibrant flower colors)


For the Cake:

1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a 10x15-inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Grease the paper lightly with butter or cooking spray.

2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and granulated sugar until the mixture becomes pale and fluffy. This will take about 5-7 minutes of whisking.

3. Sift the cake flour over the egg mixture and gently fold it in until well combined. Be careful not to deflate the lovely airiness we've created.

4. Add the milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract to the batter and gently fold them in until everything is incorporated.

5. Pour the batter into the prepared jelly roll pan, spreading it evenly with a spatula. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the cake springs back when lightly touched.

6. While the cake is still warm, carefully invert it onto a clean kitchen towel dusted with powdered sugar. Peel off the parchment paper.

7. Starting from one short end, gently roll up the cake along with the towel. Let it cool completely in this rolled-up form.

For the Filling:

1. In a mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream and powdered sugar together until stiff peaks form. This will be the luscious filling for your flower roll cake.

2. Divide the whipped cream into separate bowls and tint each portion with different food coloring to create a vibrant palette of colors.

Assembling the Flower Roll Cake:

1. Carefully unroll the cooled cake from the towel. Spread a thin layer of one of the colored creams evenly over the cake.

2. Roll the cake back up gently, this time without the towel, and place it seam-side down on a serving platter.

3. Using a serrated knife, trim the ends of the cake diagonally to create a beautiful flower petal shape.

4. Decorate the cake by piping the remaining colored creams onto the surface to create a stunning flower design.

5. Refrigerate your Flower Roll Cake for at least an hour to set the cream before serving.

And there you have it, my dear foodies - a Flower Roll Cake that's as delightful to look at as it is to eat. This dessert is a true showstopper, perfect for special occasions or whenever you want to treat yourself to something extraordinary.
