Chocolate Cake Roll

This cake roll is my loose tribute to Ho Ho's.  It was a hit a Thanksgiving.

  1/4 Cup Special Dark Cocoa Powder                                       ----Filling----
  1 1/4 Cup Sugar                                                                       8 Ounce Cream Cheese
  8 Tbl Butter                                                                             1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  4 Large Eggs                                                                            2 Tbl Butter
  1/2 Cup Cake Flour                                                                 1/2 Tsp Vanilla
  1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour                                                       ----Topping----
  1/2 Tsp Baking Soda                                                                1 Container Magic Shell
  2/3 Cup Water                                                                        

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a sheet pan with parchment paper, spray with cooking spray and set aside.

Combine sugar and butter in a large bowl, cream together.  Add eggs, one at a time, combining well after each addition.  Add cocoa powder, mix well.  Add 1/3 cup water, then cake flour, then remaining water and then the AP flour and baking soda, mixing well after each.  Pour into prepared pan and bake 20 minutes, or until it springs back when touched.  Remove from oven, sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Top with a clean towel, turn onto a flat surface and roll carefully, removing paper as you roll.    Cool completely on a wire rack.

When cool, combine filling ingredients.  Unroll cake gently, spread with filling and re-roll.  Refrigerate until very cold, remove and top with magic shell, then return to refrigerator.  If you like, do this last step a few times to make a thicker chocolate shell.
Serve cold.
