Double Cheesecake Swiss Roll

You may be familiar with the traditional swiss roll or vanilla roulade cake, even with the chocolate and jam varieties of a chocolate log or a jelly roll...

But, this recipe is a special one! It is a Double cheese cheesecake roll. 

The Sponge that wraps the cream is an adaptation of the Japanese cotton cheesecake, which is essentially a cheesecake sponge. We added aged Parmigiano reggiano into the batter which makes it slightly so special *lol* It enhance the flavours of the cake really well.

After finishing the sponge recipe, we thought it would be so cool and inception -y to use a cream cheese frosting as the filling which is totally the right choice... yum~

Our cream cheese frosting is good for a lot of other cakes like red velvet, carrot cake, banana cake, chocolate cake... etc oh so many!

This cheese sponge is so moist and soft it is out of the world, I am sure you will love it~ Bookmark our page!

Infographic Recipe will be updated soon!

4. Remove the bowl from the heat and beat it until cooled with firm peaks
5. Slowly incorporate 1 cube of butter at a time and beat it
6. Beat it until everything is uniform, smooth and creamy (if the mixture looks curdle, continue beating it until it comes back together, if it still doesn't come back together, it will after adding the first spoon of cream cheese)
7. In another bowl, beat cream cheese until whipped and smooth
8. Add spoonful’s of whipped cream cheese into the buttercream and beat until incorporate
