    Preparation:45min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Spray a Swiss roll tin with vegetable oil spray. Sift flour, cinnamon, ginger and allspice into small bowl. Set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks, 1/3 cup white sugar and 1/3 cup brown sugar until very thick, about 3 minutes with an electric mixer. On low speed, beat in pumpkin, then flour mixture. Using clean, dry beaters, in a large bowl, beat egg whites and salt until stiff but not dry. Fold egg whites into batter in 3 additions.
    3. Spread into prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean.
    4. Place smooth (not terry cloth) kitchen towel on work surface; dust generously with icing sugar. Cut around pan edges to loosen cake. Turn cake out onto kitchen towel. Fold towel over 1 long side of cake. Starting at 1 long side, roll cake up in towel. Arrange cake seam side down and cool completely, about 1 hour.
    5. To make the filling: Pour 2 tablespoons rum into small heavy saucepan and sprinkle gelatine over. Let stand until gelatine softens, about 10 minutes. Stir over low heat just until gelatine dissolves, then remove from heat. In a large bowl, beat chilled cream and 3 tablespoons icing sugar until stiff peaks form. Beat in gelatine mixture. Fold in 6 tablespoons toffee pieces.
    6. Unroll cake, sprinkle with 4 tablespoons toffee pieces. Spread filling over. Starting at 1 long side and using kitchen towel as aid, roll up cake to enclose filling. Place cake seam side down on platter. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead.) Cover with foil and refrigerate.
    7. Trim ends of cake on slight diagonal. Dust cake with powdered sugar. Spoon some of the warm caramel topping over top of cake. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup toffee pieces. To serve, cut cake crosswise into thick slices. Serve with remaining topping.
