So here it is! The famous Christmas Yule Log!
The tradition of burning the actual Yule Log dates back to the 1600’s.
This fabulous Christmastime cake also known as Buche De Noel is one you will not want to miss out on for your holiday dessert buffet spread. It is the centerpiece that will spark much conversation and gain you much praise! By the looks of it, it is intimidating, but watch the video below as I show you how you too can pull off this elegant cake.
Very often the key to success in baking is preparation.
Gather your mise en place well ahead of time; get your recipes made in advance; prepare in stages to take the stress and workload off of one single day.
To try to do everything from start to finish all in one day is enough to make any baker, advanced or novice, want to throw in the towel!
I prepared my Chocolate Roulade Cake a week ago, and while that was baking I made my Meringue Mushrooms and Simple Syrup.
Yesterday I made my Chocolate Buttercream Or Mocha Buttercream is you prefer! And I was ready to go!
That way all I had to do tonight was make my Simple Ganache, fill the roulade with the buttercream and assemble the cake! It doesn’t get easier than that guys!
