Frosting Ingredients:

  • 2- 8 oz. packages of Cream Cheese
  • 2 Sticks of Butter at Room Temperature
  • 3 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla


  1. In a Bowl beat eggs with an electric mixer on high speed until thick and yellow
  2. Add in the Cake Mix, Sour Cream, Water and Oil and mix on low for about 30 seconds to 1 minute
  3. Add in Red Food Coloring until you get a deep dark red color.
  4. Spray a 10×15 Jelly Roll Pan with Non-Stick Cooking Spray, then place Parchment Paper over the spray to cover the pan completely.
  5. Pour batter over the Parchment Paper and Bake for 12-13 minutes at 350 Degrees.
  6. Remove from oven and immediately turn over onto a towel that is covered in powdered sugar.
  7. Roll while hot and place on a baking sheet or set aside on the counter to cool.
  8. When the cake is completely cooled, Unroll the towel carefully.
  9. Mix all the frosting ingredients together.
  10. Spread with ⅓ rd of the Frosting before rolling.
  11. Slice off about 1” of both ends of the cake to make it look even
  12. Frost using a spatula or Large Decorating Tip (I like to use a decorators bag and large tip to create swirls because it’s quick, easy and hard to mess up!)
  13. Cover with Holiday Sprinkles using your hands to gently press sprinkles into the icing.
