Sift flour and spices into a bowl and set aside. In a standing mixer or by hand with a whisk, beat the egg yolks and 6 TBSP sugar until thick and pale yellow. Add the pumpkin puree, vanilla and oil. Remove from bowl and set aside. In a kitchenaid standing mixer or by hand, whip the egg whites and remaining 2 TBSP sugar to stiff peaks. Fold the dry ingredients into the yolk/ pumpkin mixture, then fold in the whites. After the batter is made, remove 1 cup and divide it in half. Color one half with orange food coloring and the other half with a pinch of cocoa powder and black food coloring. Add these batters to piping bags and set aside. In a prepared baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprayed, pipe out alternating diagonal lines of each. Freeze for 10 minutes. Spread the remaining batter over the lines. Bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven, turn out on to a clean piece of parchment. Flip again (design side down) on to a dish towel dusted with powdered sugar. Roll up the towel.

For the filling

¾ C plus 2 TBSP heavy whipping cream

¾ C sifted powdered sugar

4 oz mascarpone, room temp

1 pinch of salt

Add the cold heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and salt to a kitchenaid standing mixer fitted with a whisk attachment and whisk on high until the cream folds in soft peaks. Lower the speed then add the mascarpone in small installments until well incorporated.

To finish assembly

Add the cake, print side down, to a layer of plastic food wrap, larger than the cake itself. Add a ½” layer of the cream filling to the top of the cake, spreading evenly. Using the plastic food wrap, roll the cake up, securing the edges of the food wrap and rolling in to a tight roll. Let cool then serve. Enjoy!
