Red Velvet-Peppermint Cake Roll
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1 - 8.25 oz Pillsbury™ radiant red cake mix
  • ¼ cup Crisco® pure vegetable oil
  • ⅔ cup water
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1-16 oz Pillsbury™ cream cheese frosting
  • Confectioner sugar for dusting
  • Crushed peppermint candy for garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, stir cake mix, Crisco® oil, water, and egg until moisten.
  2. Spray a jelly roll pan generously with baking spray, line the pan with parchment paper. Pray the parchment paper with baking spray, this helps remove the cake with ease. Pour batter into pan.
  3. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or the cake springs back up when touched.
  4. Dust a kitchen towel with confectioner sugar. Invert the cake onto the towel and peel off the parchment. Starting from the outside, roll up the cake around the towel, leave seam-side down and let it cool completely on a rack.
  5. Once cool, unroll the cake, remove the towel and spread generously with cream cheese, gently roll the cake back as previously done and frost the outside. Garnish with crushed peppermint candy.
