Mix egg white and granulated sugar until frothy. Add the butter and mix. Add in the flour and mix until mixture is smooth.
Don't add the color paste yet. Put about 3 tablespoons of the paste in a piping bad with Wilton # 3 pipe, and trace the Love patterns.
When done tracing the LOVE letters, add leftover paste to the leftover paste and add color to it. Mix until there are no white streaks, and transfer mixture into a piping bag with tip. I used Wilton # 3
Trace heart pattern. Freeze pattern until set, about 15 minutes. and now we can prepare our cake roll batter.
FOR THE CAKE ROLL:
Pre heat oven at 350 F and put the wire rack at the middle of the oven.
Add the coffee with the coconut milk and mix until the coffee granules are completely dissolve.
Put egg yolks in a small bowl.
Add in the sugar and mix. Add the cake flour. Mix
Add the oil and coconut milk / coffee mixture and mix.
Mix using a wire whisk until all of the ingredients are incorporated.
FOR THE MERINGUE:
Put egg whites in a stand mixer bowl and mix until frothy.
Add the cream of tartar and mix. Add the sugar intermittently. 3 times and mix until stiff peaks.
You can tell if it is stiff peaks, when meringue forms a horn when you pull the whisk upward.
PREPARING THE CHIFFON CAKE:
When meringue is ready, scoop about a cup of meringue mixture and add it into the egg yolk mixture.
Use a folding method in mixing. Using a spatula, scoop mixture then pull up until all of the mixture are incorporated. Do this gently, folding too hard will result in a hard chiffon cake.
Add mixture into the rest of the meringue and mix again using the folding method.
Transfer mixture into a NON GREASE 9.5 x 13 inches lined with the pattern and pour cake batter on top of the pattern, tap the pan in a flat surface to remove air bubbles.
Bake at pre heated 350 F oven for 10-15 minutes. Start checking at 12 minutes using a toothpick test method.
When chiffon cake is done, WORK ON ROLLING the cake. Try to scrape sides of the pan using a knife.
ROLLING THE CAKE:
While the cake is hot, work on rolling it. I actually roll it 5 minutes after taking out from the oven.
Put the PAN in a flat surface and GENEROUSLY sprinkle top of the cake with powdered sugar. This part is important, so that the cake will not stick on the cloth or parchment. Cover the cake with tea towel or parchment paper.Leave about 1 inch of the towel/parchment on one side and put a flat pan on top of the cake/towel. Flip the cake .You really need to be careful that the pan fits or the cake will not slide when you flip it. I have cake ruined and break doing this process.
Remove the patterned parchment paper very gently, and then cover the top of the cake with parchment or towel topped with pan and flip it again. Very gently roll the cake with the tea towel/parchment . Roll it from the shorter (width side ) side of cake. This process will create a rolled formed muscle of the cake. Let the cake rest for about 30 minutes or an hour. Letting the cake rolled for a long time makes it soggy and flimsy.Then you can fill the cake.
Let the cake cool for an about 40 minutes.
FILL THE CAKE:
Put the cream cheese in standing mixing bowl and mix for about 1 minute. Add in the powder sugar. Start mixing in slow so that sugar will not fly everywhere .
Add the heavy whipping cream and mix until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate cream if not using immediately.
WHEN THE CAKE IS READY TO FILL:
- Print the pattern here. and
- Freeze any left over paste for next use.
- The size of the pan is 9.5 x 13 inches sheet pan. Going higher in size causes the pattern to not stick in the cake.
- Make sure the rack is in the middle of the oven.
- Don't force the cake to unroll. Sometimes, I just snuck the filling under the roll, as in the case of this cake.
- Fill only when the cake is cold.
