Daring Baker # 1 : Swiss Swirl Ice Cream Cake

Dark Chocolate Swiss Cake Roll
Salted Carmel and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
Chocolate Fudge Sauce


Swiss Cake Roll

Two Different Kinds of Ice Cream

Chocolate Fudge Sauce

This assignment was not as easy as I thought it was going to be. The hardest part of the assignment was the Swiss Cake Roll. I made it two different times, the first time the cake stuck to tea towels which just made a huge mess. (It was not a happy day for me!) The second time was much better, the cake only stuck in a few spots and made an acceptable "jelly roll". The Swirl Cake filling was made of cream and vanilla sugar, beaten to stiff peaks. Making the ice cream and the chocolate sauce were a snap! Assembly, a little different story. (Note to people reading this melted ice cream does not like to stay were it is placed! )

This was a great first challenge, cannot wait to see what my next challenge is. Only have a few days to wait!
