1/3 c  sifted cake flour
2 T cornstarch
1 t cinnamon

Cake:
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 15-1/2x 10-1/2X 1-inch jelly-roll pan. Line with waxed paper; grease paper. In large mixer bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add 1/4 c granulated sugar, beating until stiff peaks form; set aside.

In small mixer bowl, beat egg yolks and remaining 1/4 c granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Fold in cranberries, walnuts, flour, cornstarch and cinnamon; gently fold into egg white mixture. Fold in melted butter. Spread in prepared pan. Bake 20 minutes or until top springs back when lightly pressed. Loosen cake from sides of pan; cool 10 minutes. Sprinkle cloth towel with confectioners' sugar; invert cake onto towel. Peel off waxed paper. Starting at 10", roll up warm cake with towel inside. Cool cake completely, seam-side down, on wire rack.

Unroll cooled cake. Spread whipped cream mixture to within 1/2" of edges; roll up cake. Pipe or spread White Buttercream over cake. Store in refrigerator.
