Koi Fish Jelly Roll Cake

Why didn't I see these a few weeks ago for Boy's Day?! They would have been the perfect thing to make for the holiday. Oh well, at least I'll be prepared for next year.

Want to make some of your own cute koi fish jelly roll cakes? Stop by Junko's site for the decorating how-to (recipe not included). The site is in Japanese so here's the translated version if you need it. Besides this koi fish cake, you'll find instructions for other jelly roll cakes. Happy Baking!

Update: Jelly Roll Recipe
I just noticed the translated version isn't showing all the pictures. Not sure why that's happening. Click on the untranslated version "Junko's site" for the step by step pictures.

Hi, I really like these rolls, thanks for sharing this link!
But I can't find the recipe and I don't understand if they cook after each "mixture addition"... where could I find these information?
Sorry for my english, thanks!!! :)

This is the cutest thing I've seen in a long time.

I have to get a roll pan now and try something like this. It actually doesn't look *that* hard. I'd probaby want to start with something easier like a simple pattern. I would have never though to do this technique. I have been interested in making a roll cake for quite some time now.

Thanks for the link!
