Chocolate caramel turtle cake roll with one slice falling off

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 Cake Roll Recipes 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 in one of the following cake roll recipes!
