Sherbet Roll

Today I'm going to be attempting to make a Rainbow Sherbet Roll.  I've never made anything like this before so here goes nothing!

1 package of Angel Food Cake mix
1 1/4 C Cold Water
Powdered Sugar
1 1/2 C each of three sherbet flavors of your choice (I used Raspberry, Orange, and Lime)
Large Mixing Bowl
Jelly Roll Pan (or cookie sheet)
Tin Foil
Wax Paper

Preheat your Oven to 350 Degrees
Make sure you line the Jelly Roll Pan with wax paper!  If you don't the cake will burn and stick!

Mix the cake mix and the cold water together in a large mixing bowl.  Beat on low for 30 seconds, then medium for 1 minute.  Pour half of the batter onto the Jelly Pan and use the other half for whatever you want.  (Maybe a backup, I sure wish I had done that)  Bake this for 20-25 minutes.  If you are using a dark pan either lower the temp to 325 or check at about 15  minutes. 


When the cake is done let it cool for about ten minutes.  Spread a towel out and sprinkle it with powdered sugar.  When the cake is cooled carefully take the wax paper off.  If you over cook the cake it will stick to the wax paper.  (I made this mistake)  If you are having trouble I found that using a knife to separate the two helps.  After the wax paper is off roll up the cake in the towel and let completely cool for about an hour. 


Set out your sherbet so that it is easily spreadable, but make sure it isn't too melted or you'll have a mess!  When the cake is cooled lay out sugared side down on a piece of aluminum foil.  Spread the Sherbet over the cake in thirds.  (First flavor over the first third, second over the second third, etc...)

 After you are finished spreading the sherbert (you want to do this as quickly as possible or you'll have a mess!) roll up the cake and wrap it in tin foil.  Place it seam down for a more secure hold.

 Leave it in the freezer for about six hours before you eat it.  It works best to set it out just a few minutes before you intend to serve it.  Now let's see the finished product!

 Not only does this dessert look good but it tastes good too!  A decently healthy dessert that is a refreshing cherry on top of your meal!  Enjoy!
