  • Then follow our simple steps:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a greased 15x10x3/4-inch jelly roll pan with parchment or wax paper. Grease and flour paper; set aside. Place 1 pkg. (2-layer size) cake mix, eggs, yogourt and oil in large bowl; beat with electric mixer on medium speed 1 to 2 min. or until well blended. Spread 3 cups batter into prepared baking pan; tap gently on counter to remove any air bubbles. Pour remaining batter into 4 to 6 medium lined muffin cups. Bake 15 min.
  • Meanwhile, place a large sheet of parchment paper on top of a clean kitchen towel; sprinkle evenly with 3 Tbsp. icing sugar. Invert cake onto prepared towel; remove pan and top sheet of parchment paper. Starting at one of the short ends, roll up cake with paper and towel. Cool on wire rack 30 min.
  • Meanwhile, gradually add 1/2 cup icing sugar to cream cheese in small bowl, beating with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Stir in filling. Unroll cake; remove paper and towel. Spread cake with cream cheese mixture; roll up and refrigerate 30 min. Place on serving plate. Stir flavouring into whipped topping; spread onto log. Add garnish as desired. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices to serve. Store leftover dessert in refrigerator.

    Excellent and easy. My only mistake was using a Super Moist Cake Mix. It was a hit at Christmas

    Excellent recipe! I was nervous to try this, as I have never rolled cake before, but I figured it was no fail, coming from this site. Used chocolate cake, cherry filling, and added 1 Tbsp of Glenfiddich to the filling. I didn't flavour the cool whip.

    if you dont want it to crack it is best to make it thin maybe 1 cm - 2 cm. also, if you do have cracks, you can fill them in with the filling and hide them with the cool whip.
