So good!!! Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect! My only suggestion, while rolling, is to sprinkle on a lot of powdered sugar onto your tea towel when rolling. I liken it to the same method as if you were flouring your surface well before kneading dough. Dust your tea towel with powdered sugar, and use your hands to spread it out on the towel, creating a light layer. Don't skimp this part. If you only use a little bit, I guarantee you'll be having cake stick to the towel and your end result won't turn out. The layer of powdered sugar helps as a barrier so that cake doesn't stick to the towel, and you'll see as the rolled up warm cake 'rests', heat will escape from the towel, also melting the sugar into the cake surface. When you unroll the cake, the powdered sugar will have added an extra thin layer of sweetness. I also refrigerated the filling first before spreading onto the cake, and that eliminated the gooey mess that spills out from the sides when rolling. Otherwise the filling would be too soft. Great for freezing, and thaws out really well. To store in the freezer, wrap tightly in plastic wrap or parchment, then wrap in foil. Will taste fresh even when thawed. I made several of these for parties over the holidays. I brought one out after a month in the freezer, and after thawing it tasted just as fresh as the day I made it. When slicing it up to serve or present on a platter, clean your knife after each slice so that you get nice, clean cuts.
