My Tupperware Lady shared this recipe with me 25 years ago. It's been a holiday dessert ever since. Don't be afraid of rolling the cake up in the towel. It's easy and worth it! Cut them into thinner slices and spiral them on a round platter. Great presentation and wonderful food gift, plate and all.
