One thing the holidays require is sweets. Lots and lots of sweets. If you're doing the season right, you're probably elbows deep in cookie dough, have a batch or two of fudge already made and are pondering what other confections you can whip up to celebrate this season.
With all that baking going on, one thing so many people forget is Christmas dessert. This is not okay. Having a stunning cake to end your holiday meal is a must, and we've got the cakes you need to make that happen: the classic French Bûche de Noël.
The Bûche de Noël is a cake that is baked and frosted to resemble a log. Well, not just any log, but the traditional holiday yule log. If you're thinking that sounds, well, strange and unappetizing, we are here to prove you wrong. We have gathered the most beautiful yule log recipes out there, each one of them worthy of a spot at your holiday table.
