Patricia O’Neill from Granger, Ind., was seeking a recipe for making rolled sponge cake filled with strawberry-flavored whipped cream.

I located a delicious and relatively easy recipe for a strawberries-and-cream sponge cake roll on noemptychairs.me.

While some novice cooks might consider a rolled sponge cake a tricky thing to make, it just takes a little practice to get it right. The real key is to not overbeat the egg whites and to take care when combining the whites with the yolks.
