Bûche de Noël
The history of the Yule log cake stretches all the way back to Europe’s Iron Age, before the medieval era. Back then, Celtic Brits and Gaelic Europeans would gather to welcome the winter solstice at December’s end. People would feast to celebrate the days finally becoming longer, signaling the end of the winter season. To cleanse the air of the previous year’s events and to usher in the spring, families would burn logs decorated with holly, pinecones or ivy.
Our Bûche is a rolled, filled sponge cake, frosted with chocolate buttercream to look like tree bark and festooned with marzipan holly sprigs and other edible decorations.
