Announcing Sugar High Fridays #50: Rolled Cakes
Posted by bakinghistory on December 10, 2008
I am delighted and proud to be the host of the 50th edition of Sugar High Fridays , the wonderful blog event created by Jennifer of The Domestic Goddess, which celebrates sweets in all their glorious variety. As a theme, I propose Rolled Cakes, those old-fashioned desserts that are also known as jelly rolls, Swiss rolls or roulades. They are usually made with sponge or Genoise cake baked in a rectangular pan (the jelly roll pan, of course) and filled with jam or cream.
For this edition of SHF I hope to gather as many variations on this basic type of cakes as possible, from the simplest to the most elaborate. You can use any type of batter such as genoise, meringue, chocolate sponge, etc. etc., and fillings, icings, and decorations as you like, and any size from regular to miniature. Use classic recipes or make up new creations—possibilities are virtually endless.
To participate, please:
*Post a recipe of rolled cake by December 22, 2008 and include in your post a link to this page and to Jennifer’s blog. You can also include the logo

>your blog name and URL
>name of your recipe and permanent link

If you do not have a blog and still wish to participate send me an email including all the above info (minus blog name and URL :-) )and I will include it in the roundup.
The roundup will be posted on December 26th, 2008
I look forward to many many gorgeous rolled cakes and I thank Jennifer for the opportunity to host!
