Decorated Roll Cake recipe

rollcake-01

A simple roll cake made from sponge cake wrapped with cream. If you think decorating the cake is difficult, with a little ingenuity you can make this cute decorated roll cake! Junko, who created a recipe book called “Let’s make deco-roll! Patterned Roll Cakes”, has a blog were she has uploaded lots of fun and cute recipes for decorated roll cakes.

rollcake-02

As it is written in Japanese you may not understand the details, but it seems you just fill a pastry bag with the batter for the pattern and draw that, bake it in the oven for a minute and a half, and then fill in the rest with the sponge cake batter. If it was a simple pattern, perhaps you could try making one too?

kitty daifuku

kitty-daifuku-1

These are the “kitty daifuku”, sold at the “Hello kitty JAPAN shop” in the international terminal of Haneda airport. They contain cream in one of three flavors: custard, chocolate or green tea. They are so cute, it seems a waste to eat them…

kitty-daifuku-2

They are exclusive to Haneda airport’s international terminal, so if you have a flight to or from Haneda, you have to buy some! I think anyone would be delighted to receive them as a gift.
