There are lots of cake rolls around Pinterest these days and I am no exception. Ever since I found out I can make a roulade, or cake roll from a cake mix I have been trying all different kinds of tastes. That’s when I decided to make something light, pretty and pink just in time for the holidays. I was going to send half of it over to mom’s and take half to work. Instead, Mr. Picky Eater would not let it leave the house! It is pretty darn good – that’s for sure and has layers and layers of flavor but easy enough that you could make this in one evening for a holiday party.
