spread the love... pretty heart swiss roll =) 彩繪蛋糕卷

I was surfing for dulce de leche recipes when I came across this pretty cake!! This oh-so-pretty swiss roll aka deco roll immediately caught my heart!! I'm sure no one could ever resist such a pretty sweet swiss roll!! So instead of baking dulce de leche cupcakes I landed up baking this yummy sweet roll!! =) Hubby is always sweet & very complimentary of my baking attempts, even though they aren't the tastiest. However, I really think he meant it this time when he said these were absolutely yummilicious!! He almost finished half a roll by himself!! Teehee =p

Surprisingly this recipe is not difficult at all, given its my first attempt at swiss roll. You just need a bit more patience & creativity!! Teehee... You can design your own templates or wordings depending on the theme, the sky's the limit. Original recipe called for white chocolate ganache frosting with strawberries but I used pastry cream with passion fruit instead as I only have these ingredients @ home. Of course you are free to experiment with any frosting you preferred. So here is the sweet recipe for you to enjoy! =)
