This Cookie Monster themed Swiss Roll is the perfect combination of cake and cookies! I used my Swiss Roll recipe to create this version. Click here to find my Designed Swiss Roll Guide – this guide will give you all of the tips and tricks needed to make this recipe.
Cookie Monster Swiss Roll Key Ingredients
- Egg Yolks – Egg yolks contain fat, which adds moisture and richness to this Swiss Roll. This also helps create a tender and moist texture creating a soft cake that allows us to actually roll the cake without it cracking. Not only that but the proteins in egg yolks help to bind the ingredients together. This helps our cake hold its shape.
- Egg Whites – Our whipped egg whites form a foam that adds volume and lightness to the cake batter. All of the little bubbles that form when whipping the egg whites expand while the cake is in the oven which gives us a light and fluffy cake.
- Vinegar – The addition of an acid like vinegar, helps stabilize the egg whites and contributes to the the formation of a stronger and stiffer egg white mixture. Folding in the egg whites to the original batter in this recipe is the most important part. It’s important to keep the batter fluffy.
- Corn Starch – The corn starch helps to make this cakes texture soft and tender. Sifting this in with the flour also helps to keep the mixture light and airy throughout the entire baking process. Cornstarch also has the ability to absorb and retain moisture which leaves us with a deliciously rich and moist end result.
What Other Designs Can I Make With This Recipe?
I have had so much fun making all of these Designed Swiss Rolls and the best part about this recipe is that you can customize them to fit whatever theme, holiday, or design you want! Below you can see some of the most recents Designed Swiss Rolls I’ve made.
If you’d prefer to not use as much food dye to get the cookie monster effect, you can add less dye to the whipped cream filling to get the blue theme in the cake without the entire cake being blue. The whipped cream mixture will need less food dye to achieve the same shade.
