    This made a delicious and beautiful cake that pleased everyone who tried it!! It was fairly easy to roll, and I only ended up with one crack which I disguised by tucking under. There was extra filling left over, but it was tasty and I used it for something else, so no harm was done there!! The cake was moist and wonderful. I changed nothing in the recipe, and shall make it again!  -  02 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is very good, but I use baking mix instead of the flour, and sprinkle my towel with confectioners sugar before rolling.  -  04 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This cake was fabulous!! I served it at a birthday party for my friend along with cinnamon ice-cream and it was a HUGE hit! Make sure to keep it stored in the refridgerator though.  -  28 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
