      Buddha never had a jelly roll cake before, so I made him this one, with blueberry jam (his favorite). Now I can't get him to share it! Great job Sharon123!

      Fun cake! We spread raspberry preserves lengthwise on one half of the cake and pineapple preserves on the other. After rolling, we sprinkled with confectioners sugar and served with fresh whipped cream as suggested. It was great having two different tastes with one cake - just slice from the side you prefer (or take a sliver of each)! The kids enjoyed this one - thanks for posting :)
