Learn how to make cake rolls and a Bûche de Noël- that's the French Christmas Yule Log Cake to you and me, is a classic holiday rolled cake that is decorated to look like a log or branch, that has fallen to the floor of the forest. After midnight Mass, the French eat the cake for dessert. It is appropriate to serve the cake from Christmas Eve to New Year's Day.

Bûche de Noël can be made from a jelly roll cake, also known as a biscuit roulade, that is filled, frosted and decorated to look like a log. This one is filled with chocolate whipped cream and garnished with candy clay leaves and berries and meringue mushrooms. You can even use marzipan, a mixture of almond paste and sugar, to form the decorations from.
