Christmas Tree Patterned Swiss Roll Cake

Swiss roll or cream roll is a kind of sponge cake roll stuffed with either whipped cream,fruits or buttercream or sometimes simply with jam. A thin layer of batter prepared with flour,eggs and sugar baked in a sheet pan, spread with jam or buttercream, rolled up and served as round slices makes this roll. I have prepared this roll with usual measurements as christmas tree Patterned Swiss roll, filled with chocolate mascarpone cheese cream. This delicious vanilla swiss roll filled with a chocolate loaded mascarpone cream makes an excellent dessert after a meal. I carried this swiss roll cake to our Xmas dinner party and all our friends enjoyed thoroughly this incredible cake. I got so many appreciations for this cake, watelse we need na.

Am running this week's blogging marathon with Kid's delight - Cakes and cookies as theme, this swiss roll cake was a big hit among the kids, hence am posting this cake today. If you dont feel like baking with this kind of themed swiss roll cakes, you can still bake a simple vanilla flavoured swiss roll. However since i want to carry an attractive dessert i baked this christmass tree patterned swiss roll cake. Apart from piping the christmass tree with the cake batter, this swiss roll cake calls for usual preparation. Even the filling calls for an easy breezy preparation.
