classic here. Mix up the batter and color about 1/3 cup of the batter a darker brown with some brown food color. Put the dark batter into a piping bag.(piping tip optional)
Cut a piece of parchment paper the same size as your jelly roll pan. Here's where the fun begins. Pipe a free-hand design onto the parchment with that darkened batter. You could pipe pumpkins, or swirls, or leaves, etc.
Place your design in the freezer to stiffen up. This will prevent the design from smearing when you add the rest of the batter. I think I only waited 10-15 minutes. It doesn't take long.
Remove the decorated parchment from the freezer and place it in the bottom of your jelly roll pan.
Pour/spread the regular colored batter into the pan. Spread the batter carefully.
I had extra dark batter in my piping bag.....what to do......I couldn't help myself. Ok, enough playing around, put that thing in the oven!
Roll the cake up in a clean towel and allow to cool.
Enjoy your delicious and festive pumpkin roll.
