Turn cake upside down onto clean kitchen towel sprinkled with 2 tablespoons icing sugar; carefully remove foil. While hot, carefully roll up cake and towel from narrow end. Cool completely, seam side down, on cooling rack, about 1 hour.

    Unroll cake carefully and remove towel. Spread filling evenly over cake; roll up cake. On serving platter, arrange cake, seam side down; cover loosely and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Before serving, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon icing sugar. Store covered in refrigerator.
