Reviews for Chocolate Cherry Cake Roll
"Could I use Maraschino cherries versus the fresh cherries? I didn't give it 5 stars cause I haven't tried it yet."
"Haven't made this yet sounds delicious! I have a question for mrsgt,did you just add dry pudding mix in whipped topping?"
"Because of the whipped topping, I would not freeze this."
"As a diabetic, I always substitute Splenda for the sugar called for in the desert; sometimes Splenda Blend and sometimes just Splenda Granulated. I never notice a difference and my guests have never said anything to the contrary. Most people like to cut calories; diabetic or not."
"This a wonderful dessert. We took this too a family potluck night and it was devoured fast!"
