Vertical Swiss Roll?

What is a vertical Swiss roll? A Swiss roll cake is a sponge cake that is rolled up with a delicious filling of your choice. It lay flat on it side and is similar in appearance to a log. However, though a vertical Swiss roll cake is much the same, it would stand upright, appearing much like a regular cake expect the layers would stand vertically. This unique creation is a wonderful way to impress guests for a party or celebration. It is fun and relatively simple to make, but is a definite treat to enjoy.


  • A flat sheet sponge cake, (one made for a Swiss roll)
  • A filling of your choice, Preferably cream and fruit
  • Extra cream and fruit, For the outside

  1. Cut the sponge cake lengthwise into three equal pieces.
  2. Spread the fruit and cream (or whatever filling you choose to use) evenly on each of the cake pieces, leaving room at the ends of the cake.
  3. Roll one of the pieces of cake up in the same way you would for a Swiss roll then set it in the center of a plate on it's bottom.
  4. Carefully wrap the second piece of cake around the first, starting where the first piece of cake ends. Repeat with the third piece.
  5. Cover the cake with the fruit and cream and set in the fridge for a while.
  6. Cut into the cake and serve !
