and the best part: the dessert!!!
Who doesn't love a decadent Buche de Noel? It's one of my personal favorites. You have a lot of variations of this famous yule log but the classic chocolate genoise with chocolate whipped cream will always have a special place in my heart <3 .
I'll admit, the rolling part of the cake took me some time (and several cakes!) to master, but the result definilty worth the trouble.
Other than that, the cake is pretty straightforward to make. Just bake your favorite genoise sheet cake , spread some chocolate whipped cream and roll!
Some green and red fondant holly will look great on top. But maybe next year I'll try baking some meringue mushrooms.
Happy Holidays Everyone!! May the coming year bring us even sweeter things...
