The lovely elegant roll called the Swiss roll is a very tasty sponge cake, rolled up after filled with a choice of whipped cream, caramel or jam. I remember from my childhood visiting my aunt, she made lovely individual vanilla Swiss rolls with a light caramel filling inside. It was a wonderful treat to enjoy! I also vaguely remember making a Swiss roll in one of my home economics classes in my school career. The Swiss roll comes a long way and it is really a soft delicate treat, leaving your stomach not heavy afterwards. You also do get a chocolate variation too, and I think a lovely lemon curd and whipped cream filling would be lovely too! Of course the jam and whipped cream variation is the most popular and well-known option. For a plating suggestion I would place the Swiss roll on a beautiful white platter, and decorate it with lovely pink roses or rose petals or any other pinkish lady-like colour. If doing a lemon curd variation white roses would look beautiful or a yellow pansy, pansy, nasturgeon, or white eatable flowers would do the trick. Together on a high tea table it would look absolutely fabulous. Remember to dust the Swiss roll with the icing sugar first before adding the flowers! For a chocolate variation, try my Chocolate Swiss Roll.
