Hi everyone ♥

The easiest cake you can ever make if you are in a hurry and need to serve cake for your guest is a delicious Vanilla roll cake.

This Fresh Lemon cake roll, is made in less than 30 minutes, including baking time.

The sponge is so soft, and delicious it is filled with whipped cream, a Creamy lemon cream, fresh strawberries, raspberries, and chopped dark chocolate.

This simple cake is so mouthwatering, and I think your guest or family will love it if you make it for them.

You can keep the top plain with just whipped cream if you prefer.

In Norway we have our national day coming up, May 17 so I use the colors of the Norwegian flag, except for the chocolate, I just could resist adding dark chocolate on top as well.
