This Patriotic Cake Roll is perfect for the Fourth of July. With it’s red and blue filling and soft sponge cake, it’s the perfect party dessert.
What is a patriotic cake roll?
A cake roll, also known as a jelly roll, is a sponge cake that is filled and rolled. The magic of the cake is that it’s rolled while it’s hot, straight from the oven, so that once it’s cool it’s easy to roll back up with filling.
This Red, White, and Blue Cake Roll is so easy to make. I made a basic vanilla cake to pair the red and blue butter cream with. If you need a step-by-step instruction on how to roll the cake, check out this post.
I love the red and blue pops in this cake. It screams Fourth of July, which is probably my favorite holiday!
Don’t be scared of cake roll recipes. They really are easier than you think. They’re perfect for parties, especially when they’re dressed up all patriotic. And the cutting will inspire oohs and awwwws, not bad words and ugliness.
