Pink Velvet Roulade

I saw this post on foodgawker. A Pink Velvet Roulade made by Sprinkle Bakes.

SO.CUTE. Seriously - pale pink cake with swiss meringue buttercream?? YUM.

Mine doesn't look quite as good as Sprinkle Bakes.......but I'm pretty pleased with the effort. I always thought that roulade's would be really hard to make - trying to roll it up without it cracking etc........but it was actually pretty easy!!

 I've also never made swiss meringue buttercream before either - it's SO yum. I wish I'd made it sooner. I was a bit nervy about making it because I'd always heard it was really hard but you literally just keep beating it until it gets thick like cream. It goes a bit curdly and separates, but then all of a sudden it comes together and it's silky smooth and deeeeeeelicious!! 

You should definitely give it a go - well worth it!!

I used to be obsessed with roulades when I was little. I think because they looked like cake lollypops (well a slice does). This looks delicious! :D
