Multi-Colored Cake Roll with Cream Cheese Filling

I happened to find the greatest video tutorial for a Rainbow Colored Cake Roll and just had to make one! My food coloring gel set came with some bright colors and some pastel, so I opted to just use the bright ones which I thought would be closest to true colors... Surprise!!! I ended up with a neon cake roll! Not what I had in mind but still cute and different... Sometimes ya just gotta roll with it:@)

I love this idea folks, there are so many possibilities: pink, white and blue for baby showers- red, white and blue- orange, white and black- red and green- and my personal favorite... Sports team colors! You can click HERE for a very clear video with instructions and recipe measurements.

 Notes:
  • I knew I wanted multi-colors in each slice so I ran my stripes the opposite way than the lady did in the video. 
  • The stripes of color were added using Wilton disposable icing bags.
  • I did trim the edges all the way around the cake-the Baker's treat!
  • While her whipped cream filling sounded great I planned to serve this the next day so I opted for a more solid Cream Cheese Filling: 4oz cream cheese, 1 Tblsp butter (add 2 Tblsp if you'd like), 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 C powdered sugar mixed well.
  • This project is best made in a cooler, temperature controlled environment... Windows open on a humid July day in Philadelphia=Eggs deflating (read: melting) fairly quickly.

  6. Oh Lynn...this is just DELIGHTFUL....what a FUN IDEA!!! I've never seen nor heard nor eaten one, but I surely would love to try it. I think your colors are just awesome! The pink & green would be perfect for a Delta Zeta party. Two shades of green with some white would be cute for St. Patrick's Day.
    Red, pink & white for Valentines Day!

    Somehow I don't think the Cleveland Browns colors of orange & brown would be too pretty though. Bleahh!

    GREAT JOB, Honey! I can't wait to see what color combo you come up with next.

  13. HI Lynn Just discovered you blog and although my blog is to do with nature, I could not resist seeing more of your delights, so I joined. I really laughed out loud when I saw that wonderful coloured roll and all the ways you could change it for different events. Fabulous. Your recipes look great, I have had a quick peep at some of the previous ones. Hope you can have a peep into my blog when you are not knee deep in cooking or baking. Margaret

  15. Well that looks fun. Must say that your colors are much more summery to me than hers were. I like them better. And I do like the rainbow effect in each piece.
