Buche de Noel
The cake is made much like a jelly roll, but instead of being filled with jelly, it is filled with buttercream or whipped cream. The end of the cake is cut off at an angle and put at the side of the log to look like a branch. Then, the entire cake is frosted and the frosting is dragged with a fork to imitate the bark of a log. There are many creative ways of decorating the cake using candy mushrooms and leaves or silk greenery. The Buche de Noel is not only for looks, but it is as delicious as it is beautiful.
