What Is A Swiss Roll Cake?

A Swiss Roll Cake is also called a jelly roll, cream roll, or yule log. The cake consists of a light sponge cake that is rolled up with a chocolate ganache, jelly, or whipped cream.


For the egg whites to whip properly, the bowl you use has to be clean. If there is any greasy residue, the egg whites won’t whip properly.

Make sure to use fresh eggs. This will ensure perfectly whipped egg whites. Add cream of tartar it stabilizes the egg whites to create a stable meringue. Use 1/8 tsp per egg white, and if you don’t have cream of tartar, you can use lemon juice (1/2 tsp per egg white).

Don’t let the cake cool down before filling and rolling it. If the cake is too cold, it won’t be soft enough to roll and might tear.

There are many ways to fill a Swiss roll cake. You can also fill it with plain whipped cream, marshmallow fluff, cream cheese, or buttercream.

The cake is ready to remove from the oven if it springs back after you poke it with your fingers. If you overcook it, it will be rubbery.
