Almond Coffee Roll Cake: Nutty sweet roll cake

 I don't know why I can't stop thinking about baking something, seen like my imagination really love sweet things.

Almond Coffee Roll Cake
 When I read baking books or browsing through a magazine, I have to keep my notebook and pencil next to me, ^^ prepare for my imagination, haha.
For this time, I saw a photo of roll cake and I think um... I want to make it too. A roll cake with something special, and yes it doesn't mean complicating recipe.
Just a coffee flavored soft sponge cake, sprinkle with coffee syrup then cover it with coffee flavored creme au beurre and sprinkle with caramelized almond, simple ingredients but the taste is great.
The nutty and caramelized flavor of the caramelized almond go very well with the coffee flavor, bitterness and sweetness, the taste that can represent life ^^, but from my (cake) point of view, life had more sweetness than bitterness, hehe.
