Use the Inlay Cake Design Technique to Create a Beautiful Sponge Cake Roll

April 10th, 2014 by Beth Somers

Whether you refer to the technique as Japanese cake roll or joconde imprime, this easy technique of inlaying designs in a thin layer of sponge cake batter is taking the baking world by storm. Let me show you how easy it is to create a beautiful, decorated cake roll with a technique called inlay cake design. I’ll walk you through it step-by-step in this video.

I used a simple flower pattern to form a design that looks like tiles, but you can use any pattern or draw your own designs to create a beautiful and delicious roll cake. Inlay cake design can be used in a rolled cake or as a decorative wrap around the outside of a layer cake.

I hope these hints and tricks make it easy for you to make a stunning cake roll with an inlayed design. Sponge cake has never been more beautiful!
