  • Gently unroll cake and spread with cream cheese filling and second can of undrained cranberries.  Reroll the cake in a spiral using the towel as a guide.  Trim the ends to make neat edges. 
  • Top with remaining frosting and sprinkle with fresh cranberries, orange slices, and a dusting of powdered sugar.  Chill for 20 minutes, slice and serve.
