buche de noel


I didn't plan to make this dessert for Christmas.
It was a very spontaneous decision.
I have wanted to make the very traditional Buche for a long time.

I decided to do a mascarpone based filling instead of the mousse.
The issue with that was that the filling was heavier than the cake, and caused some splitting in areas.
Thankfully this such a forgiving cake and set well after some chilling, and the icing concealed all of the imperfections and cracking.


I added spiced dried cherries and black raspberry conserve in layers on top and underneath the mascarpone filling.

a vintage tray + powdered sugar "snow" + some branches trimmed from one of our evergreen (juniper?) trees outside.

The buche was very rich and very good.
