strawberries + cream roll

Our trip to Dallas in December 2012 brought so many new memories.  My cousin and I spent a good portion of our days cooking and baking, trying new recipes that only a professional could perfect.  Our love for baking expanded each day, and one morning, we woke up and snow was on the ground.  We knew this called for an attempt at a special dessert--this wonderful strawberries and cream roll.  We knew it would be a little difficult because of all the precise rolling that it required, but we figured that being together would ease the process.
The ratio of strawberries to home made whipped cream to cake was perfect.
Duaa, you rock.. and i miss you.
{this dessert was inspired by my friend Gabby's mother's strawberry roll- 
which is still #1 on my list}
