Rilakuma Swiss Roll [Peach] (Cartoon/Printed Swiss Roll)

Cartoon/Printed Swiss Rolls are just so adorable and pretty much irresistible! Here's the Rilakuma Gwen, Sharron and I baked together at Gwen's place. This recipe was taken from the Miss Junko Book of Swiss Rolls. This Rilakuma Swiss Roll (Peach) was baked for lil' Joy whose birthday was approaching and sure enough, she loved it! It's one of those moments that makes baking for loved ones all worthwhile. 

I love this recipe for swiss roll as it's so soft and tastes really good. 

I'd rank this recipe as a difficulty level 3 out of 5 and it takes about an hour (excluding chilling) to prepare.

Rilakuma Peach Roll Recipe
This recipe yields a Swiss Roll of 9" in length using a 9" by 11" Swiss Roll Pan

3 eggs, separated
1 egg white
65g castor sugar
60ml water
40ml non flavoured oil (I used canola oil)
80g cake flour
1 tsp vanilla bean paste

some cornflour
some cocoa powder
some cake flour

150g whipping cream (dairy and non-dairy are both good)
3 halved canned peaches


Preheat oven to 170 degree Celsius. Line the baking tin with baking paper. Place template under it. 

If you'd like a copy of the template, drop me an email at (:

To the 3 yolks, add 35g of castor sugar sugar, 60ml of water and 40ml of oil. Whisk well.

Well mixed!

Add the cake flour that has been sifted.

Scoop out 5 bowls of yolk batter in the following quantity and add cake flour accordingly and mix well:

Bowl 1: 1 teaspoon
Bowl 2: 1/2 teaspoon + 1/4 teaspoon cake flour
Bowl 3: 1 tablespoon + 1/4 teaspoon cake flour
Bowl 4: 1/2 teaspoon 1/4 teaspoon cake flour
Bowl 5: 2 tablespoon 1 teaspoon cake flour

Add food colouring into the respective bowls:

Bowl 1: some black food colouring
Bowl 2: leave it plain
Bowl 3: 1/4 teaspoon cocoa powder
Bowl 4: add some yellow food colouring
Bowl 5:  add some pink food colouring

You should get something like that of the image above.

To one egg white, add a small pinch of corn flour. Whisk to stiff peaks.

Scoop out egg whites into the respective bowls in the following quantity: 

Bowl 1: 2 tablespoon of meringue as above
Bowl 2: 1 tablespoon of meringue as above
Bowl 3: 2 tablespoon of meringue as above
Bowl 4: 1 tablespoon of meringue as above
Bowl 5: 1/3 of the meringue as above

Fold the meringues into the batter.

Place the black mixture into a piping bag fitted with Wilton tip 3 or snip a small hole and pipe the outline of Rilakuma. Bake for 1 minute. Not more, not less. 

Place the white mixture into a piping bag and snip a small hole and pipe the nose part of Rilakuma as well as the area between the arms. Bake for 1 minute. Not more, not less. 

Place the brown, yellow and pink mixture into their respective piping bags and snip off a small hole. Pipe the rest of the parts. Bake for 1 minute 30 seconds. Not more, not less.

In the meantime, add a small quantity of corn flour and remaining 30g of castor sugar into the remaining 3 egg whites and whisk to stiff peaks. Add in the remaining meringue from first part (if any). 

Add 1/4 of the meringue into the yolk batter and fold it in.

After the first 1/4 of  meringue has been folded in, add the remaining 3/4 of meringue and fold it in. You may use a spatula or your hand (my favourite method!).

Pour cake mixture onto baking tin and spread out as evenly as you can with a spatula. 

Bake for 14 minutes or till toothpick comes out clean from the centre of the cake. Be careful not to poke parts where the image is. 

Invert cake and peel of baking paper. Invert side of baking paper and place it back onto the cake (dirty side up facing out).

Flip cake back and roll up the Swiss Roll immediately. Allow the roll that has been rolled to cool completely.

To 150ml of whipping cream, add a teaspoon of vanilla bean paste. Vanilla extract/essence works just fine but it won't taste as good as good old vanilla bean paste.

Whisk cream to stiff peaks.

Spread whipping cream onto cake. Do not to keep the baking paper under the cake (We'll still need the baking paper).

Cube up canned peach and arrange onto Swiss Roll in rows. You may choose any fruits you fancy.

Roll up the Swiss Roll using the same baking paper and allow cake to chill and set in fridge for 30 minutes before consumption. 

I hope you'll enjoy the Rilakuma Swiss Roll!
