Swiss Vanilla Cloud Roll
Why would I try to recreate something that is already perfect?
I’m totally fine with recognizing that sometimes the best vegan recipes are not even mine!
Sara Kidd has perfected the Vegan Swiss Roll Cake in her cookbook The Vegan Cake Bible
No Crack! Moist Vanilla Roulade filled with light & airy chocolate whipped cream!
Of course you can use whatever filling you like best
The only ingredient in Sara’s vegan Swiss roll recipe that you may not have would be the Coconut Condensed Milk
For those who cannot find the canned variety I have a homemade recipe for vegan sweetened condensed milk below!
If you watch the video tutorial for the making of this cake, you will see I had a bit of a FAIL!
My first attempt was filled with chocolate whipped cream, ganache AND chopped roasted almonds
The cake roll was super stuffed and did not roll properly and was quite the mess!
A delicious mess no doubt, but it just did not look pretty as a Swiss Roll should!
So be sure to learn from my mistakes and DON’T OVERFILL YOUR ROULADE!
For the white chocolate egg shells filled with Chocolate Whipped Cream
You will need the egg mold and some tempered white chocolate *not sponsored
WATCH THE VIDEO TUTORIAL FOR HOW TO MAKE THIS CAKE!
Notes for Success:
It is really important not to over fill a roulade cake, the filling really should not be too much thicker than the actual cake
