Pumpkin Cake Roll, Recipe

I finally finished! Yes, I finally made the pumpkin cake video, and did it before Thanks Giving. ^_^
Now for the most important part to this video, the recipe.  
  Pumpkin Pie Cream Cheese Roll Cake

3 eggs
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
3/8 tsp. cream of tartar
2/3 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup chopped pecans


1 cup powdered sugar
8 oz. cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla
3 Tbsp. whipping cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.Place a sheet of parchment paper
on a 15x10x1 inch baking sheet making sure the parchment paper
is wider than the sheet.DO NOT GREASE!Separate eggs and bring to
room temperature. Mix flour, spices,and soda together. In separate
bowl beat egg whites with cream of tartar till foamy, slowly add
sifted powdered sugar while whipping till soft peaks form. Cover
with a damp cloth. In another bowl beat egg yolks, adding sugar
gradually, till it traces. Then add pumpkin puree and beat well.
Next fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the pumpkin yolk mixture
till it lightens then fold in rest of egg whites in two batches.
Dust the mixture with the flour folding it in a little at a time
till all the flour is incorporated.Gently pour batter onto ungreased
sheet pan and spread out evenly. Sprinkle with the nuts. Bake for 10-15 minutes or untill it springs back when touched. When done let cool slightly on a rack but leave in pan covered with a towel. Once it is cool enough to touch, remove from pan using the parchment paper. Place another piece of paper on top of the cake and flip it over. Remove the paper from the cake.Now dust a cloth or towel with sugar and flip the cake onto it.Cut off the edges,roll the cake up in the cloth and allow to fully cool.

To make the filling let the cheese soften. mix cheese, sugar,
cream and vanilla. Beat until fluffy.

Unroll cake and frost all but one inch from the  sides.
 Using the cloth, roll cake up from the short
side being careful not to squeeze all the frosting out. Once it is
fully rolled put cloth over it.Using a long stick or knife,hold
the upper cloth in place and pull the under cloth to close the roll
Chill the cake until ready to serve.
This recipe has been perfected and used by my older sister, all right are hers, and the cake is wonderful.

The thing that was a pain for me, and was so troubling for me to finish, was adding music to the video. This is the first YouTube video I've ever added music to, so it was a first, and it kind of hurt my head during the process. I'm happy to say though, that I took that challenge, and got through it. I also used annotations for the first time in making this video, and had to work purely from memory for details and tips on making the cake. 

That's it, enjoy, and have a great Thanks Giving. ^_^
