Strawberry Jelly Roll Cake Recipe (Life Tastes Good)
Life Tastes Good's recipe for Strawberry Jelly Roll Cake is a cousin of strawberry short cake. The only difference is, instead of piling the sponge, cream, and strawberries on top of one another in layers, the cream and fruit pieces are arranged on a sponge sheet and rolled into a cake and then topped with confectioner's sugar.

"This cake makes an impressive presentation, no doubt, but the real beauty is in the taste! The light sweet flavor of the sponge cake paired with fresh Florida strawberries is love on a plate!"
