Useful Hints and Tips

  • Leave the cake in the refrigerator for around three hours for better cutting into pieces.
  • Use strawberry yogurt instead of cream cheese for a softer filling.
  • Decorate the cake with whipped cream and strawberries on top for a better appearance.
  • Use baking paper so the batter does not stick to the tray.
  • Cut the edges of the roll so the cake looks even.
