My aunt invited my husband and I over to her home for dinner one night eons ago — and for dessert she made a pumpkin roll cake. My husband loved it sooooooooooo much I was demanded to get the recipe. I had made the roll cake for his birthday one year and for every Thanksgiving since our first encounter with this yummy cake. My aunt is 100% Italian (me only being 50%)…. had made the roll cake Italian style. Instead of using cream cheese for the filling it has mascarpone Italian cheese instead. Anyhow, this pumpkin roll cake was 7 months in the making. I grew the pumpkins used in my recipe — cooked them up, pureed them then made the roll cake for Thanksgiving.
