Little red hearts go round and round… Heart patterned roll cakes, aren’t they adorable? Love is all around these cakes, from the pattern to the cream filling with crushed frozen macaron shells – I like to call it Macaron Cream 🙂 . The delicate macaron shells soften fast and aren’t really detectable in the texture but they do bring flavour, believe me!
This recipe makes one 45cm (17.7 inch) cake roll, which I cut into three pieces. Piping the pattern isn’t hard, it’s only a bit time consuming but the results are so worth it! As you’ll see in the recipe pictures, I used four overlapping templates of heart pattern to cover the whole baking sheet, you can print the template here.To make sure your pattern decoration stays in place when you are pouring the cake batter over it, you need to keep it in the freezer to the moment your cake batter is ready – test a few hearts with your finger and return to freezer for few minutes if they aren’t sitting firmly. This is super important as if they aren’t frozen they’ll spread out with the cake batter.
Spread the love and roll up some cakes for the weekend or save the recipe for Valentine’s, it’s guaranteed to roll straight into the hearts ♥ ♥ ♥
