Leta, this is a wonderfull dessert!! Good clear instructions and so easy to make. I made the jelly roll version and filled it with lemon curd, no frosting , just a sprinkle of confectioners sugar, sliced and a blurb of sour cream on each serving. Big time rave reviews!! Thanks for sharing.

It came out nice, but I thought it tasted too much like mollasses and not enough like ginger.
