One of the most common reasons for a pumpkin roll recipe to fail is a lopsided cake. To prevent that with this pumpkin roll recipe, give the entire jelly roll pan a couple of gentle side to side shakes to help the batter to even out.You will need to taste the cream cheese frosting to test the sweetness. Taste it to make sure it’s sweet enough.If not, add a very tiny amount of powdered sugar and whip again. Rinse and repeat. Once it’s sweet enough for your family, set aside until you are ready to use it. Refrigerate if it will be longer than 1 hour.If your cream cheese filling is too sweet, adding a bit of whole or 2% milk will help cut the sweetness. Just be sure not to add too much. If you do, you’ll have a runny filling/frosting.
