A Yule log, or French Bûche de Noël, is a traditional dessert served at Christmas, and may appear to come straight out of the forest. Our version of the Christmas yule log cake is a bit fancier, covered in ivory-tinted frosting and decorated with roses, carnations, pine and holly. Serve this holiday-worthy dessert as a spectacular Christmas eve dessert or at the end of your Christmas Day celebrations!

  • Notes:

    • Sprinkle powdered sugar on the cooling towel. Dusting your cooling towel with powdered sugar helps absorb some of the moisture while your cake dries, allowing it to hold its shape better.
    • Do not let the cake cool for too long before rolling. You want your cake to be soft and pliable, and allowing it to over-cool could make it difficult to roll. Rolling while it's still warm will “train” the cake to hold its position once it cools.
