huge disaster

I recently tried to make a swiss roll, but it came out more like a swiss fold than anything because it kept breaking and refused to be a roll-like thing. The real problem here though is that the top of it [which was supposed to be the outer part of the swiss roll] came out really sticky - if touched, bits of it would easily come away stuck to my fingers or a utensil. It was so sticky that it was impossible to turn out onto a sheet to be rolled - it stuck to the sheet so that big patches came off. This isn't the first time something like this has happened to me - other baked goods also come out with varying degrees of stickiness.

WHY?

Please help :(

If you're making a chocolate roll, you can dust with cocoa, too. I prefer to use a thick towel rather than a thin, flour-sack-like towel.
