UPDATE Flavor Profile - Pumpkin and ?

I am making a pumpkin roll for Thanksgiving dessert. I made one last year, and we enjoyed it. I will use the same cake recipe, though I am upping my game this year by decorating the batter, like this:

Last year's filling was a fairly standard cream cheese frosting which was fine, but I don't want fine :). I leaning toward a marscapone, whipped cream filling, hoping it would be a bit lighter. For flavors, I was thinking orange, but my sister's dessert contribution is orange/ginger/cranberry flavor profile, so I feel I should go in a different direction.

Here are some thoughts:

  • spiced apple marscapone
  • maple marscapone
  • Coffee Caramel Cream Cheese (this is on NYTimes)
  • Toffee Marscapone(or cream cheese) filling

What flavor would you like in a pumpkin roll? I think I am leaning toward the Coffee Caramel, maybe it is like a latte?
