Over 30 Cake Roll Recipes perfect for any occasion!

I’ll admit it: I’m Crazy for Cake Rolls. I was petrified before making my first one (the Turtle Cake Roll, below) and I was shocked at how easy it was. For years I’d been scared to try my hand at these delicious cakes because they just looked too darn pretty to be able to make.

I was wrong. And if you think the way I did, so are you! 🙂

There are so many ways to make a cake roll. The flavor combinations are endless and I love them because the cake to filing ration is pretty even and they make enough for a party instead of a crowd. And? They’re gorgeous. Check out all of my personal cake roll recipes!

I hope you find one you love today!

  1. I’ve also always been afraid to make cake rolls.  But my fear stems from thinking the cake part is going to be too dry.  But these look so delicious, I might just have to try one.  I am especially eyeing that carrot cake one.  It looks beautiful!!

  2. Waaa, I love cake rolls too! I see so many fun ideas here. Thanks for sharing!

  3. oh my gawd, Dorothy!!! too many awesome recipes to choose from!!! but you did set my fears aside and I have to try a cake roll recipe. .  like now!! You ARE the Cake Roll, Yule Log, Jelly Roll…Queen!!! love these!! happy holidays to you and your beautiful family! 

  4. I wish I wasn’t so afraid to try one 🙂 they sure are pretty

  5. Oh wow – I hadn’t realized you’ve made so many! I don’t know if you know this, Dorothy, but I’ve made your Carrot Cake Roll…twice. AND more importantly, it’s how I originally found you! #winwin Love this round-up so much!

  6. Oh my gosh! I saw this on IG and came right on over! Roll cakes are some of my favorite. I think it’s because my mom always made them when I was a kid, so I have a lot of roll cake nostalgia. Can’t wait to look through all these!

  7. I like how you roll. Yep, I went there. <3

  8. You are the cake roll queen and make the most beautiful ones! The end. 🙂

  9. Oh my! I’m torn between the chocolate caramel turtle, spiced caramel apple, and the tiramisu cake roll. They look so good! I pinned all three.

  10. Cake rolls always seem a little extra special! Love this list!

  11. I haven’t made a cake roll since I was a kid!  All of these look insanely good and are giving me the nudge to make one.  My first was a jelly roll and you’re right, it is surprisingly easy!

  12. Your cake rolls are perfection! My mom used to make them, and I missed her pumpkin roll on Thanksgiving.

  13. Gosh I want a slice of each and every one of these!  Thank you so much for including me my boo!

  14. Ever since I had ice cream cake roll as a kid, I have loved it…I tried your mint chocolate one and loved it…a friend made your truffle one…loved it…easy to make…and sooo good!

  15. I’m in love with cake rolls, and your recipes are always look so fun and delicious!  Great round up, and thank you for featuring my German Chocolate Cake Roll!

  16. I made my first one last year and I’m 68. I want to make every one of these. Don’t tell anyone how easy they are to make

  17. Question … do these have to be refrigerated?  I want something unique to make for a cake walk. 

  18. I am having a problem with it cracking, what am I doing wrong?

    • There are so many reasons a cake roll can crack. If the eggs aren’t beaten enough, if it’s under or over done. When it’s done it should spring back when you touch it. There are so many reasons why recipes crack (I have a recipe I use all the time and sometimes it cracks, other times it doesn’t). When it cracks I paste it together and then frost it!

  19. Thanking you tooooooo much sweety…

    very nice 🙂

    I’m in love with all homemade baking. Cake rolls and your recipes are looks soo cool & delicious.

    Thanks dear to share …
