Strawberry Roulade

This roll cake turns a classic roulade inside out by putting the strawberries from the filling into the batter for the sponge cake. The result is a beautiful rosy pink cake with a velvety vanilla buttercream filling. Don’t let the Italian buttercream method intimidate you, it’s much simpler than it sounds and the result is more than worth the effort. Strawberry Roulade was the technical bake for Cake Week of Season 3 of The Great Canadian Baking Show.

This week's Technical Bake was a puff pastry pie that put the remaining bakers to the test. Baker Recipes, Pastry Recipes, Dessert Recipes, Cooking Recipes, Desserts, Canadian Cuisine, Canadian Recipes, Yummy Treats, Sweet Treats
