Yes Tricia you did see my

Lemon Cake roll posted a few days ago. I took it down because I did not like the pictures. Here I am trying again.
1 package angel food cake mix
3/4 cup 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar, divided
1 package (8 ounces) reduced fat cream cheese softened
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel. One large lemon will do both.
1 carton (8 ounces) cool whip, reduced fat, thawed. Be sure to thaw in the fridge or it breaks down.
12 drops liquid yellow food coloring. I never use it.
Fresh sliced strawberries
Line a 15x10x1 in. baking pan with wzxed paper; coat paper with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.Turn cake onto a kitchen towel lightly dusted with confectioners' sugar. Gentle peel off waxed paper. Dust with 1/4 cup of confectioners' sugar. Roll up cake in the towel, jelly-roll style, starting with a short side. Cool completely on a wire rack.
For filling, beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar. Stir in lemon juice and peel. Fold in whipped topping and food coloring if desired. Unroll cake; spread with filling to within 1 inch of edges. Roll up again; dust with the remaining sugar. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Cut into slices. Serve with lightly sweetened sliced strawberries. Yeild 12 servings.
I found this recipe about 7 years ago in a Taste of Home publication called Light and Tasty. I use it every time I want to impress someone.

I am off to take this to my sister's rededication marriage ceremony. Hope it impresses!
