The first time I made this festive cake roll was for Lincoln's birthday…but it's a great dessert for any holiday or special meal. Feel free to change the ice cream flavor.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 18, 2014

This cake is lovely and my guests liked it. I got lots of compliments on it. Since cherries are now in season, I pitted and halved about a cup full and added them to the ice cream. Yum. Next time I make this I am going to try some type of mint ice cream with the same chocolate cake recipe.
