Ice Cream Roll : How to make an Ice Cream Swiss Roll Cake Recipe

To make a traditional Swiss roll or roulade, you begin with the basic sponge cake baked in a sheet pan, then you top it with a spread (jam, cream, etc) and roll it to form a roll cake. With an ice cream cake roll it is basically the same procedure, start with a flat sponge sheet cake, spread ice cream on top of it, then roll it up. It is a perfect cake for children's birthdays or parties or even just a tasty after dinner dessert!

You can either choose to buy sponge cake pre-made from the store or you can use a simple sponge cake recipe.
