Carefully peel off paper. Roll up cake and towel together, starting with narrow end. Cool on wire rack. For filling, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, butter and vanilla extract in small mixing bowl until smooth. Carefully unroll cake. Remove towel. Spread cream cheese mixture over cake. Reroll cake. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.
