Recipe here: Stephanie Jaworski of Joyofbaking.com demonstrates how to make a Jelly Roll. A Jelly Roll is defined as a thin sheet of sponge cake that is spread with a layer of jam or jelly and then rolled up. Normally it’s decorated very simply, that is, with just a sprinkling of powdered sugar. When you cut the Jelly Roll crosswise, each slice has a pretty pinwheel design. This type of cake has been around since the mid 1800’s and goes by many names. Depending on where you live you may know this cake as a Jelly Roll, a Sponge Roll, a Cake Roll, a Roulade, or even a Swiss Roll.
