The Secret Tips for rolling the cake without it breaking
I have used a kitchen tea towel before. Sprinkle the towel with powder sugar, lay the entire cake on the towel, and then start rolling. Roll the towel in the roll as well. Let it cool entirely then unroll, remove the towel add the filling, and reroll. Worked like a charm!
