Hi everyone

I wanted to make a simple cake that is made in less than an hour that reminds me of summer.
A Jelly roll cake is always a good choice, what I love about this simple cake is that you can fill it with anything you love, A blank canvas!

I decided to fill this cake with a fresh passionfruit frosting, I added some sliced fresh strawberries on top of the cream and some raw licorice. I use this brand → here.
I love the combination of passionfruit, strawberries, and raw licorice.
Of course, if you are not a fan of licorice just leave it out.

  1. I made this the other day, but used vanilla cream for the filling and the frosting. Came out great. My wife said it tasted like it came from a bakery. Note that the recipe on this site for vanilla cream makes about 2 cups more than you need to fill and frost.

    • Hi Mark; I´m so happy you made this for your wife; Happy she liked it, Thanks for the feedback
