Red Velvet Cake Roll from LivingOnADime.com
1 box red velvet cake mix (2 layer cake size)
water, eggs and oil to add to cake mix (see adjustments below)
2 pkgs. (3 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Cut a piece of waxed paper to fit the bottom of a jelly roll pan and grease the pan. Mix cake mix according to the directions on box, except cut back slightly on the water and oil. (For example, if it calls for 1 cup of water, use 3/4 cup and if it calls for 1/3 cup oil, use 1/4 cup. You are just removing a few tablespoons.)
Pour the mix into the jelly roll pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Check and if it is browning too quickly, turn it down a little.
After the cake is baked, lay a cotton dish towel on a flat surface and sprinkle well with powdered sugar. Carefully and quickly flip the cake onto the towel. Peel away the waxed paper. Starting at the short end, roll up the cake, including the towel, and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
While the cake is chilling, beat the filling ingredients together. Gently unroll the cake and spread with the filling. Re-roll, leaving the towel behind. Place on a platter and chill a couple of hours until the filling is firm.
Sometimes cake rolls will crack. Don’t panic. Cover it with chocolate frosting, lots of powdered sugar or serve it sliced with some whipped cream.
