So-called buche de noel


Well, Maggie made a buche de noel (see her Dec. 22 post), and it looked like a lovely little cake that you would want to eat. Mine, not so much.

Here is my attempt. This is its best angle. From other angles, it looks somewhat less convincing.

Is it a Yule log, or a dog turd? Only the "artist" knows for sure!

I record it here only because I am fairly certain it will fall to pieces on its way to my stepsister's place tomorrow. Also, someone needs to know what to tell the paramedics if I go into sugar shock from sampling so much buttercream...
