How To Make Cake Roll With Box Cake Mix

Using the box cake mix, make everything easier. But, you won’t prepare the cake mix as it listed on the box. Since we need thicker mixture for the stripes I cut down the amount of liquids (water and oil) listed on the box, but add more eggs. Eggs also make the cake spongy and flavorful. It’s the easiest way to make the tastiest vanilla swiss roll you’ll ever try.

For this festive looking, colourful cake, separate prepared cake mixture in for equal portion and add the food colors of your choice. It’s so easy, but it looks so fancy! I used yellow, green, blue and pink for Easter. You can use whatever you like, or have on hand.

In a large mixing bowl beat the eggs for about 2 minutes or until pale yellow, then add cake mix, water, oil, and mix well. Divide batter evenly in 4 bowls, add a few drop of a food colour in each and stir well.

Ingredients and colors for Easter cake roll.

Transfer batter into 6 piping bags and cut off a small corner of each bag. Pipe the stripes in a diagonal pattern, until the pan is filled. To make sure you don’t run out of any colors before you finish covering your entire pan, pipe the colors thin, and then if you have batter remaining, you can go back and fill in as needed. Use a toothpick or a skewer to make the swirls, just don’t swirl it too muck and make a mess with the color.

Tap your pan on the counter, and then place it into the oven. Bake for 16-20 minutes, or until the cake is set. The cake’s surface should be dry and spring back when gently pressed. Also, do not dry it too much, or it will crack while rolling.

Lay out a clean, smooth kitchen towel on the counter and dust it generously with powdered sugar. The cake will be sticky, so make sure to dust the kitchen towel generously with powdered sugar. Also, make sure you roll up the cake when it’s hot out of the oven!!! If you let it cool much at all, it will risk cracking when rolling or unrolling.

When the cake is baked, run a knife around the edges to loosen from the pan. Flip the cake out onto the dusted kitchen towel and remove the parchment paper. Dust the cake with powdered sugar. Roll up the cake with the towel into a tight log, starting at one short end. Keep the cake rolled up until completely cooled, about 2 hours at room temperature.

Beat softened butter and vanilla until fluffy. Gradually add powdered sugar. Add a Tablespoon of milk at the time and mix well.

To assemble the cake roll, carefully unroll the cake. Dollop the buttercream with the spoon, then spread with the offset icing spatula. Using the towel to help, roll the cake back up into a log, tightly as you can and transfer on a serving plate or tray. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least 3-4 hours, or until ready to serve.
