My husband actually made this, because I was at work. I talked him through the recipe and told him what the other reviews had said. He baked the meringue in a jelly roll pan (10x15). I suspect that Rowena had a typo in her instructions and that it should read 10x15 instead of 10x12. He had a little trouble peeling the parchment paper off the meringue, after flipping it onto the parchment paper with sugar. One corner broke off, but he just use that as the start of the roll, so no one knew the difference. I had advised him to let his cream cheese sit out until it reached room temperature before mixing with the sour cream so that the filling would stay smooth. He said that he had no problems rolling it up. I think his success was mostly due to the use of the jelly roll pan and baking it exactly 10 minutes. My guess is that if he had over baked it, it would have crumbled when trying to roll it, because the edges which were the most done, crumbled a little. Plus, we followed the advice of another reviewer who said to use parchment paper, not wax paper. Since we ate it several hours after he made it, he didn't wrap it in plastic wrap. Instead, he put it in a 9x13 pan that has a tall lid. Then, he chilled it in the freezer for about an hour, and then moved it to the fridge until it was served. This is a delicious dessert! We will definitely make this again. I think I will try other berries or mixing berries.
