December Daring Bakers' Challenge is brought to us by the adventurous Hilda from Saffron and Blueberry and Marion from Il en Faut Peu Pour Etre Heureux. They have chosen a French Yule Log by Flore from Florilege Gourmand. Thank you so much to our hosts!
This particular yule log has six components. My version of Yule Log had ,
- Hazelnut dacquoise layer
- Dark chocolate mousse
- Dark chocolate Ganache insert
- Dark chocolate Feuillete insert (crisp)
- vanilla Creme Bruleé insert
- dark chocolate icing
One of the problem I have in this challenge was that I do not have a proper half-round pan, I made this in a standard loaf pan. Also I could not find the kosher gelatin in last minute for icing. Every month I am telling myself to start early but somehow I end up rushing for the last minute.
I would've finish up the cake with much more elegant decoration but two kids and husband no time for cake.
I hope you like the snowmen and the Christmas tree that I made.
Happy New Year!!
