Gingerbread Roll Cake

Every Christmas, I come across so many beautiful desserts that I want to make.  There’s just not enough time, especially this year with one less week between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  However, when I saw this Gingerbread Roll Cake by Roxana’s Home Baking, I was determined to make it.  I think I read the recipe every day for two weeks until I got to make it.  I know, I’m crazy.

I was nervous while making this cake because it involved beating egg whites and folding the egg yolks and dry ingredients into it.  I didn’t want to ruin the egg whites.  And of course I used a bowl that was too small.
