5 Cake Rolls For Dessert Lovers

The idea of the cake roll goes way back. The popular treat we know and love was first mentioned in Austrian cookbooks around 1804 and has been taking the world by storm ever since! It's no wonder they've stayed popular for so long – that light, airy sponge cake base smothered in a sweet, creamy filling and topped off with fresh fruit or chocolate is dessert perfection. That's why we're bringing you 5 cake roll recipes that keep the tradition alive and better than ever!

1. Giraffe Cake Roll

One of the best fruits to pair with a light, fluffy cake exterior is the banana. Its tangy, delicious flavor compliments the simple taste of the cake exterior perfectly, and in this recipe, a homemade cream cheese frosting really brings the flavor home! But the best part isn't even the flavor  it's the zany giraffe print design! It's cute, it's fun, and it's surprisingly easy to make, so dig in and get ready for a safari of flavor! Get the recipe for the Giraffe Cake Roll.

There are few things better than ending a meal with a nice slice of cake roll. For this particular recipe, we went into raspberry overdrive and picked a ton of our favorite berries. We even made a homemade raspberry jam for the filling, and absolutely covered the cake in a fresh raspberry coating. It's a berry delicious note to end on! Get the recipe for the Raspberry Cake Roll.
