Remember the old fashioned “jelly roll”? Well this is the same sponge cake rolled up with real whipped cream. Easy. But like all easy things……not always. This is the pic from the book….

Beautiful. I thought I would time the making of this dessert to coordinate with my Mother’s Birthday. It was one of the first cakes she taught me to make. Here’s how it turned out…..

Turned out beautifully! After the disaster of the first one. I am a firm believer of Murphy’s law; or of the “don’t try a new recipe when you’re having guests” law. The first attempt cracked during the rolling…which is about all that can go wrong with this recipe. It tasted perfect, however, so I just used it as a practice run. It was vanilla bean with vanilla bean whipped cream. Classic. But try it with raspberry jam, or chocolate pastry cream…the options are endless!!!
