Chocolate Swiss roll cake

oh what a busy week ! I had 5 cakes to bake this weekend and this is not one of them :) I made this cake some time ago. It's my usual chocolate cake however I wanted to get more creative and camouflaged it in a swiss roll :). I think it's nice although I did have some problems with the rolling. This is filled and decorated with chocolate ganache and some fondant flowers and silver balls.

When I look at stuff like this, I get reminded of good ol' Little Debbie. Man, those things helped me through a lot of rough school days :)
