In the spirit of being extra jolly this season comes a fun and festive dessert that’s sure to liven up every holiday party: a Funfetti Christmas cake roll!
The recipe for this Funfetti Christmas cake roll comes from the Passion For Savings blog. Everything from the sprinkle-covered outside to the sprinkle-filled inside makes every bite of this dessert full of holiday spirit.
The simple recipe calls for a white cake mix as the base, and then you’ll add in elements such as sour cream and colorful sprinkles to really take the cake to the next level. Meanwhile, cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla come together to create the frosting of your dreams. Of course, you’ll top that with yet more sprinkles.
The most difficult part of this dessert is the assembly. It’s important to roll the cake while hot, using a dish towel covered in powdered sugar to guide the cake into a log. Once cooled, you can apply the frosting and go crazy with the sprinkle topping.
This video from The First Year Blog YouTube channel shows how the process is done with a similar non-holiday-themed recipe that’s perfect for any other time of year:
