Reviews for Peppermint Angel Roll
"Tasted great and looked great, but it didn't take as much ice cream as called for. About 1/2 would be fine."
"I made this cake several years ago for Christmas and my kids ask for it every year and occasionally for their birthday cakes. It's so easy to make and very "Christmasy" with the peppermint ice cream."
"I made this cake with my sister but the angel food cake broke in three pieces as we were unrolling it from the towel (maybe we rolled it up wrong?). I have made jelly roll style desserts before, but since it broke up, we crumbled the cake in the bottom of the jelly roll pan and topped it with icecream. The combination of the light angel food cake and the icecream was very good. Everyone enjoyed it."
"This is also a wonderful summer treat made with sherbet - - one or many flavors."
"This is a wonderful recipe that can be used for the holidays; however, you can substitute other flavors of ice cream and serve it anytime. It's also simple to make!"
