Roll cakes are one of my favorite ways to make an impressive dessert. While I normally make some kind of design on roll cakes like I did with this Pumpkin Swiss Roll Cake, however for this roll cake the decorating is super simple with a whipped cream frosting on the inside and outside.
I also love strawberry shortcake desserts like my Strawberry Shortcake Trifle, so why not combine them?
Side note, this cake is amazing on its own but we love to serve it with my homemade strawberry sauce!

I would not recommend it. Frozen strawberries will thaw out and make the cake soggy
