The combination of rolled-up cake and cream is what makes Swiss Rolls so decadent, but taking that smooth frosting-like interior and replacing it with ice cream? That takes a stroke of culinary genius.

Baskin Robbins is doing exactly that with its newest creation, which combines together Swiss rolls, ice cream and red velvet cake. The Red Velvet Roll Cake maintains the classic Swiss Roll shape, but forgoes the whipped cream for a Creole Cream Cheese ice cream to mimic the tangy richness of a red velvet frosting. The cocoa-flavored cake is also topped with more red velvet cake crumbs and chocolate curls to give it a sleek, Yule log-like appearance.
Those who are huge fans of red velvet cake or Swiss rolls will definitely want to score one of these cakes, which takes the treat to the next level with that addition of the cold, tangy ice cream.
You can find the Red Velvet Roll Cake at participating Baskin Robbins locations nationwide through the holiday season, and can also order one online to pick up and take home. A Mini version that serves 2-4 costs $22.99, while the regular version, enough for 6-8 people, costs $34.99.
