Let’s Review the May Baking Challenge

May 2017 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Strawberries ‘n’ Cream Cake Roll

We cake rolled our way through May– challenging ourselves with a sponge-style cake roll. We haven’t explored cake rolls very much on my website, nor have we ever discussed sponge cake. I wanted to combine both to really give you something unique to try out in May. The result? Your inspiring pieces of cake art! Browsing through your photos, I see dozens of this rolled beauty. Some with whipped cream or piped roses on top, others with sliced strawberries– all swirly twirly perfection. This is one of the most beautiful desserts I’ve ever created and I’m so happy to see that many of you tried this recipe, too.

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Francisca:

“I’ve never made a cake roll before, it was a great challenge! Thank you so much for your recipe, it worked really well. I loved the idea of adding the strawberry powder to the filling. It gives a really nice strawberry flavor.”

We gathered as many strawberries ‘n’ cream cake roll photo entries as we could and included them below.
