This easy no-bake Swiss roll is made with leftover stale cake scraps and leftover buttercream frosting! A delicious, decadent & fudgy dessert!
Because I try many recipes for my blog, I sometimes have cake scraps leftover. I don’t like to throw food away. So, in the past, I’ve turned stale cake into
Cake Crumb Pie Crust, used cake crumbs to make naturally colored polka dots for my Polka Dot Cake Without A Cake Pop Maker, made 1930s Strawberry Dessert and Pink Strawberry Marshmallow Cake Pops – Colored With Beetroot. And one of my favorite uses for stale cake so far were my Edible Moss Balls: The moss balls are chocolate peanut butter cake pops covered with edible moss that I dyed naturally green with sunflower seeds!
But this time I also had buttercream frosting leftover. So I came up with this delicious vanilla no-bake Swiss roll. This no-back Swiss roll is easy and fast to make if you have unexpected guests coming over!

German nougat – also called viennese nougat or gianduja – is made with three ingredients: hazelnuts or almonds, chocolate and sugar. While store-bought nougat contains dairy – this homemade German nougat is dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free and vegan!
German nougat is so delicious – it’s used as baking ingredient, as cake or praline filling, for ice creams and desserts or eaten as it is. I always wanted to make German nougat at home – especially since I can’t eat dairy (and therefore store-bought nougat) anymore. However, all recipes that I tried produced more a chocolate spread – not real German nougat!
But, finally, after years of research and trial and error I found an old recipe for traditional homemade German nougat. Yay! I adapted the recipe slightly because the nougat was made with too much chocolate. I’m so pleased with the recipe: This homemade German nougat is even better than store-bought German nougat! I never thought that it’d be so easy to make German nougat from scratch at home.
You can make German nougat with almonds or hazelnuts. Hazelnut nougat is darker than almond nougat. They taste different too but both are delicious!
