Butternut Squash Cake Roll with Sage Frosting

Butternut Squash Cake Roll with Sage Frosting. Try this fresh take on a classic pumpkin roll for Thanksgiving! | siftandwhisk.com

I am going to preface this entire post with a disclaimer that I suck at rolling cakes. This is the first time I have ever made a roulade cake, and by “first time” I actually mean “third time,” because that’s how many times I made this recipe before it didn’t look like it had been in a grizzly traffic accident.

I tried a few different “tips” from the internet and from my mom. I tried baking the cake on greased parchment paper and without any parchment, rolling the cake up while hot in a towel dusted with confectioners’ sugar, in a damp towel, and in the parchment paper. Surprisingly, parchment paper was my worst enemy here. In the end, the cake came out best when I brushed the pan with my Cake Magic mixture.

Pumpkin Pie 5 Ways

Pumpkin Pie 5 Ways | siftandwhisk.com

Pumpkin pie has got to be one of my favorite desserts of all time. Last year, I did Pumpkin Pie 2 Ways. This year, Delish.com gave me the opportunity to one-up myself, and I created five pumpkin pie recipes for them. Of course, one is a traditional pumpkin pie and is the basis for the other four. With a few simple changes, you can jazz things up a whooole lot.

I’m having a hard time deciding if I liked the Chili Praline or the Brûléed White Chocolate Amaretti version better, but they were my favorites. The Nutella Swirl Pumpkin Pie is a delicious gluten-free option, and the Cookies & Cream variety will knock your socks off if you’re an Oreo fiend like me!

Find all five recipes over at Delish.com.
