Let’s face it: Turkey is great (especially if you make Alton Brown’s famous Good Eats Roast Turkey), but desserts are the real star of Thanksgiving.  To help you fill out your dessert table, we’re featuring favorite Thanksgiving Desserts every day this week.  Today, a dessert that’s a universal crowd-pleaser: Paula’s Pumpkin Roll Cake.

Paula tucks toffee-studded cream cheese filling inside a classic pumpkin cake, then tops with powdered sugar and caramel sauce.  For bakery-worthy results, roll the cake in a powdered sugar-coated towel while you make the filling to avoid cracks. (Watch Paula’s cake-rolling technique .)
