The Yule Log

My daughter wanted to make a yule log cake this year. If you are unfamiliar with such a thing, it is a jellyroll type cake filled with cream and iced to look like a log.

This cake takes four different kinds of chocolate, countless dairy products and hours to make. We had a great time making it but decided this will be a one-time deal and not a new annual tradition. It was yummy, and I loved helping her get it done.


  1. mmm it looks delicious, your daughter did a good job by the look of it - did it taste as good?

  2. 4 kinds of chocolate & lots of dairy products??? I'd love to see you're recipe. I have an easy version from "the cake doctor" using a cake mix, real whipping cream & brandy for the filling & pan frosting. It's pretty simple, let me know if you'd like the recipe, it's very yummy!

  3. She is getting so grown up!!!

    I can't stand it.
