Have all the ingredients at room temperature.Preheat oven to 450 degrees f. Butter or spray a sheet pan (17 * 12 inch) lined with a parchment paper. butter and flour the paper again. combine flour and corn starch, set aside. Beat the egg yolks ,eggs and sugar at high speed until thick and fluffy.( about 5 minutes in a heavy duty mixer with the whisk attachment, 7 to 10 minutes with a hand held mixer).Beat in vanilla extract. Sift half of the flour mixture over the beaten egg mixture and fold in gently with a rubber spatula. add in the remaining flour mixture. In a clean bowl with whisk attachment beat the egg whites adding cream of tartar until foamy. Add 1 tbs sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Gently fold a little of the egg whites into the batter, then add rest of the whites. Pour the batter into the pan and spread evenly. Bake until the top is golden brown and and springs back when lightly pressed, 6 to 8 minutes. while the cake is still hot, run a knife along the edges to release it from the pan. Immediately invert the cake onto a clean dish towel. Remove the parchment paper,sprinkle with powdered sugar and roll up the sponge with the towel. Once the roll is cooled, unroll the sponge and spread the strawberry mousse filling. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for few hours. Just before serving sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
