December 22, 2008 je m’en lèche les doigts (finger-licking good)
I recently made this cake for my french class, but because of a snow day, I was able to enjoy it at home, instead. It is called a Buche de Noel (yule log) and is traditionally eaten during the holidays in France. For my cake, I used Martha Stewart’s chocolate génoise. I filled it with homemade whipped cream, and frosted it with chocolate italian meringue buttercream (add 5.5 oz. of semisweet chocolate to recipe). This cake was so good, and definitely a crowd pleaser.
