I need your input pleeez????

The rolling pin will be the entire cake. I am considering baking in tin cans and gluing the pieces together with icing. Another option is a rolled cake, sort of like a little debbie snack cake, but I have never attempted such a feat. Any and all suggestions and instructions would be deeply appreciated. thanks!

does america have swiss roll? pretty easy, bake a really thin, lighter, sponge, top with your filling (bc, or cream) and roll. the only ones ive tried ar ein my books, but there will be good ones online too.
there is a technique to it, theres probably videos on you tube, or here....

other wise baking in tins is probably the way to go!

brincess_b, thanks so much. The video was great and had a lot of good "hints" to be successful. I would never have thought you had to roll the cake and let it cool before unrolling and then filling. I just might have to opt for trying it this way.

BTW, the Little Debbie I was referring to is called "swiss roll". They are so delish. Dark chocolate cake with white cream rolled inside and then covered in a thin layer of chocolate. Very addictive.

That looks awesome!! Although I must say I have some reservations about the construction of the rolling pin. She said it was just circles of cake pieced together. How would that cut if you ended up having to cut through the filling? I think I like the roll idea better. Makes for a prettier plate presentation too!

I watched a Food Network Challenge the other day where someone made a giant doughnut. I would think you could do this the same way. You would just need to make a half circle cradle out of pipe or something that is the length of the pin to sit the cakes in.

Just make a jelly roll (cake baked in a cookie sheet with sides) and decorate as needed.

That is an amazing cake! I think though I would have baked in cans and then sliced the cyclindars in half length-wise for more stability.
