The ULTIMATE funfetti cake roll! A vanilla cake paired with a cream cheese frosting. Add as many sprinkles as you like!

Ryan walked in the door and I brought this cake roll over to him and asked “Are there too many sprinkles?”

He laughed. If you’re going to make FUNFETTI anything there’s gotta be sprinkles! While adults might not love sprinkles as much as kids do, you don’t have to load your funfetti cake roll with as many sprinkles as I did – that’s the beauty of sprinkles!

Cake rolls are relatively new for me. I made my first one, this awesome galaxy cake roll covered in black chocolate ganache and lots of fun sprinkles, about a year ago. I’ll pass on a few tips I’ve learned to show you that they aren’t complicated to make!

1. You’ll need a jelly roll pan which is 10×15 inches.

2. Spray your pan with non-stick cooking spray and then place parchment paper over the spray. Make sure the parchment paper hangs off the edges a bit. You don’t want your parchment paper to be too short, otherwise your cake roll might get stuck to the pan.

3. Bake the cake roll for 12-13 minutes, avoid over baking over the cake roll or it will be more prone to cracking. Then immediately turn the cake roll onto a towel that is sprinkled with powdered sugar. Roll the cake around the towel and place it on a rack to cool completely.

4. Once the cake is cooled, unroll the towel. Spread the filling over the cake roll, leaving about a 1/2 inch gap around the edges. Roll the cake roll back up and place it on a tray, seam side down, in the fridge to chill. The longer you let it chill, the easier it will be to slice.

5. Pour the ganache over the cake and allow that to cool in the fridge before slicing.

Our short video recipe below will walk you through how to make a cake roll, but I also included a lot of process photos for how to make a cake roll in the galaxy cake roll recipe.

I used International Delight french vanilla creamer in this recipe to add sweetness and a nice vanilla flavor. I love International Delight because it’s super versatile and you can use it in a lot of recipes, in addition to in your coffee! See all of our International Delight recipes.
