Bake 52: Glazed Chocolate Cream Roll

So, I made the cake and took pictures, then forgot to blog last night. Sorry to be a day late on this one. You can get the recipe for this cake on Michelle's blog. After trying my cake, I never wanted to make it again. Not because it was hard to do or took too long (it was actually pretty fast and easy), but because I didn't think it tasted great. Now, after reading through the other bakers' blogs, maybe I do need to try it again because they seemed to like theirs.

I'm not sure if I over-baked the cake or what, but it was dry and had kind of a rough texture. I like my cakes dense, soft and fluffy. The marshmallow filling was good, but I might decrease the amount of butter next time. Or better yet, use ice cream like Amanda did.

My favorite part of this recipe was the chocolate glaze. In fact, when Nick brought slices out for dessert last night, I ate all the glaze off the top, then handed the rest off to him. It wasn't his favorite cake, either, but it's a dessert, so he'll eat it anyway :)

It did look very pretty sitting on the platter covered in shiny glaze. The side-view picture doesn't look great - I need to perfect my tight-rolling technique - but it looked much better on the slices toward the middle.
