Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Frosting

March 26, 2010 at 1:38 pm Leave a comment

Last year, I tried making my first Pumpkin Roll and was unsuccessful. There was no rolling on the cake part, just splat. I vowed not to try again.

Well, hold and behold, my mom craved something sweet and I found one big can of Libby’s Pumpkin Puree in my packed pantry. Reminder to self: Got to clear pantry before Thanksgiving.

 This ROLL failure stuck out like a sore thumb. I thought I could get away from embarrassing myself again. I researched on the web through baking blogs, comments left behind and also the manufacturer’s site, Libby’s. I stepped up to the challenge and made this.

I watched this video and learned some new tricks to prevent a FAILURE from happening. Click on the link: http://www.verybestbaking.com/advice/baking101/standalone/pumpkin_roll.aspx 


Do not overbake the thin layer of cake.

Make sure to use the correct size of pan, according to recipe. Do not stray. I improvised with what I had which was a smaller baking pan I found in my cubby the last time. The cake layer was too thick to roll.

If you follow the above first 2 rule, rolling the large layer of cake – should be easier and more flexible without crumbling. Yeah , I conquered the ROLL!
