Merry Christmas to all!
In 2006 – The International Culinary Academy has awarded me the
Cordon D’or-Gold Ribbon
for the recipe and execution of this Yule Log!
I was very honored!
This beautiful pastry is called Yule Log, Buche de Noel, Christmas Log, Baumstamm or by any other name…it is still a wonderful Christmas Cake and will grace any table with beauty.
It will make anyone’s taste buds tingle and dance just to look at it…
The cake is made of a sponge cake, filled with a coffee or vanilla butter cream,
then constructed in a shape that one feels the log is laying in the woods…
This is where I have the most fun…working with the chocolate icing like working with clay.
I would like to thank everyone who so generously is viewing my posts on this blog throughout the year, and I am most grateful for the many kind comments I have received in the past from many viewers…
And to those who have subscribed to my blog…
I am touched by your interest and loyalty..a big thank you to all……….
My wish for everyone is to have
a most wonderful Christmas, with family and friends.
I hope you will be sharing love and cheer with thoughts of giving from your heart
I wish everyone many Blessings in 2012!
