Matcha Rolled Cake (Swiss Roll)

My first rolled cake!


Hi everybody, my name is Baking Scientist. Today I am going to make Matcha Rolled Cake (^v^) hehe.. Do you like Cooking with Dog? I simply love to watch their videos. It's amazing that the dog is able to sit still throughout the time its master is cooking - so cute! :D Same time, the step-by-step video is perfect for beginners in baking like me :)



My not-so-pretty rolled cake
This is the my first rolled cake! I saw this video perhaps a year ago, but that time I only owned a 19 inch toaster oven, which was not big enough to fit a pan of this size. I upgraded my oven recently to a built-in one, and the universal pan size was about 30x35cm, a bit too big for this recipe, but I just couldn't wait to try :p That perhaps explains why my rolled cake is kind of thin :p nevertheless, the cake is very tasty :) I followed the recipe and method very closely. As expected, I was not able to roll the cake nicely - since I was not able to roll sushi or kimbap properly either :p

Today is the last day of school of the year for my girl, and we are both very happy - she is free to play all she wants, for now, and I will not need to nag at her (to remind her to study, check her work, reprimand her when she made repetitive careless mistakes, etc.). I am someone who really hates nagging, so this school holiday break is a good break for me too :)

Happy school holidays & happy baking! :)
