My autumn-themed pumpkin spice swiss roll cake is packed full of warming autumnal spices and a smooth tangy cream cheese filling. A perfect cosy weather treat!
Of course, you don’t have to do a pattern as I have. You can make a totally plain swiss roll, just omit the pattern part of my recipe 😊
However, if you’re like me and eat with your eyes first, then this is COMPLETELY worth the extra time and effort!
At any rate, this cake is delicious! Light and fluffy with a silky cream cheese icing that is just out of this world! This autumn pumpkin spice swiss roll cake will be gone before you know it!
Now don’t let a roll cake put you off. It’s really not as hard as it looks, and the results are more than worth it!
If you are craving the pumpkin spice flavours in something requiring a little less time and effort, then do check out my pumpkin spice cookies. Or even my Halloween cookies keeping the icing plain instead of coloured!
The most time-consuming part of this recipe is the pattern. But it’s just so beautiful, occasionally I love indulging in the beauty of decorated swiss roll cakes too!
This cake is normally one of my final autumnal bakes before we get to my favourite baking times of the year: CHRISTMAS! If you love Christmas as much as I do, I’m sure you’ll know my excitement!
Yeah yeah, I’m a big kid. I know! 😇
So anyways, this recipe is always a hit! Not only for the wow factor on presentation, but all those beautiful flavours too! Here in the UK we don’t mark Thanksgiving, but I know from many of my American and Canadian family and friends it’s a wonderful time to remember those we love.
So what better way than to make a showstopper like this little beauty??
Happy baking, happy autumn and Happy Thanksgiving friends! 🙂
