I'm going to show you how to make this yule log cake. This traditional holiday dessert is also known as the French buche de noel. It consist of a base of sponge cake also known in French as a genoise. That is a cake that's made with a little flour and eggs that are whipped which give the cake an airy and moist base. Perfect for this recipe. The filling is a rich chocolate mousse and it's iced with chocolate ganache. The dessert is then accented with marzipan decorations and is sprinkled with snow before serving. This yule log cake isn't just for the holidays. Any celebration would benefit from a chocolate log dessert.
